Teach with Bridge For Pleasure Free Scheme
Bridge For Pleasure Teaching Scheme

This scheme was developed for teaching duplicate bridge face to face in a class/bridge room.
However, it is being adapted for use online.

The courses start from bridge for complete beginners right through to learning complex bidding methods and card play.

The materials are free to use, largely in PDF documents available for download here.

There are six courses of ten lessons.

It's particularly aimed at volunteer bridge teachers, perhaps not the strongest players, teaching small groups.
But anyone is welcome to use it. 

Bridge 1 Getting Started, Bridge 2 Building Your Skills and Bridge 3 Taking Acol Further are all loaded.

Advanced Lessons are being updated, checked, used and loaded.

Where there is a deal shown in the lesson files, use the form below to request the deal file in DLM, PBN or LIN format.

The goal of Bridge 1 is to prepare learners for gentle simple, supervised play.

Hand Evaluation, Card play in Trumps and No Trumps,
Opening Acol weak 1NT (not with 5 card major), responding with balanced hands, responding with unbalanced hand.
Opening 1 of a suit, limit raises, opener's re-bids with one suited, two suited, and balanced hands.

Most Lesson Plans have hints on teaching either face to face OR online.
Online teaching includes detailed suggestions for materials on www.nofearbridge.co.uk, an excellent bridge learning and teaching site.
