TEACHING SESSIONS - FAST TRACK COURSE (Level 1)
The course aims to take you to a basic standard of bridge in just 10 lessons. Short self-study exercises (in both digital and printed format) will be provided for use at home to aid the learning in lessons. The teaching is mainly practically based with card-based exercises, interspersed with short expositions. Individual guidance during the lesson will be given. The Fast Track course is designed for people who are not able to attend a weekday daytime course and wish to have a shorter course. This shorter course is achieved by having a faster pace and making available some self study materials to use between lessons.
Cost: £80 for 10 lessons. Full time students pay £40. Handouts and links to digital resources will be made available, so a course book is optional. Refund after lesson 1 if not satisfied.
10 lessons on Saturday morning 10.00 – 12.30, starting 11th January 2020 and ending on the 14th March 2020.
