  • Hello. Can you let us know which year your copy of the book was printed?
  • That's a really good point about people wanting to play with their own peer groups. Whenever events are planned we generally publicise them via our usual channels (website, social media, email lists). Details of the Junior Challenge are now at eb…
  • Hi David. This is in hand (for junior / schools events). Perhaps you can drop Steve a quick message stephen@ebedcio.org.uk and he can give you an update. Details will also go on our website. For the wider student sims, which previously gave all ne…
  • We are always delighted to see new teachers using our forum and we look forward to seeing you on our next Club Teacher Training course. Many of your questions will be answered during the course and we include a comprehensive training element to enab…
  • Whatever level your learners are, there is always something interesting you can tell them about a hand that they didn’t know. However, they often spot patterns in our hand banks and they love variety so your idea of teachers across the country contr…
  • hi Gordon. These are now corrected in the teachers notes available in English Bridge School.
  • Nice mantra!
  • Hi Joyce There are three categories for our EBTA teachers. Associate teachers who have completed our Club Teacher Training course can progress to Full Membership. Many full members later progress to become Professional EBTA teachers and some then g…
  • Please see the latest information on our website https://www.ebedcio.org.uk/node/364
  • We have had a lot of requests for support in setting up single teaching tables on BBO. The information is all there in the first tutorial but we know this takes practice. Do take another look at the tutorial using the link below. Would you be…
  • Hi Mike. This is the place to leave feedback and ask questions. There is also another topic “corona crisis - teaching on line” which was started before the tutorials and has some comments about BBO which you may want to look at. I have also pasted …
  • another link from Carol S https://www.bridgebase.com/edu/minibridge/ You can play minibridge on BBO!
  • Hi Dave. thanks for sharing. A video would be great. OBS is good for screen recording. https://obsproject.com/
  • Following our EBED live tutorial, we received this comment from Carol S, who is not yet a forum member: There was a question about Minibridge and how to teach it on BBO. In fact the New Tricks Bridge Club https://www.newtricksbridge.club/system…
  • There is a good site for converting pin files to .lin format http://johnfromarran.org.uk/Bridge/PbnToLin.html
  • Hi Lou. Having a second user name is a great idea. It could be worth having a second device if you have two tables ( e.g iPad) but two voice activated tables at once might be a tall order. I'm wondering if it would cause howling feedback as that can…
  • We are aiming to get Lin files uploaded to our Teacher Zone early next week
  • Hi Senga At Bristol Bridge Club there have two sections running with an "inner circle" of gentle duplicate and a faster standard pace outer circle. It works well ans is just one session a week. I guess the choice would depend on the room size and …
  • Hi Senga I think without a doubt, transition with gentle supervised play seems to work. I’m afraid we don’t have figures. That would really need a survey! Perhaps that’s something clubs could think about i.e. a post course survey to find out how ma…
  • Some of our previous notes had an earlier play lesson but we felt that an extra session of revision i.e. Lesson 10 would benefit students at this stage in their learning. That said, it does seem that the suggested hands, (TR20) are as you say, ahead…
  • Work is starting on the "Green book" and I am so pleased to see new people joining our forum and taking part in discussions. Your feedback as experienced bridge teachers is really valuable for us. Thank you
  • Here is another comment we received: If it is a rewrite please could you attempt to keep the page numbers the same, if possible, as this makes referencing a lot easier if you have classes were student have been using the book for a few years. …
  • One or two people say they have tried to join the forum and had problems. You will receive a confirmation email. This will be an automated message and can sometimes end up in a junk email folder depending on your own privacy settings. Click the…
  • Here is response received from one of our EBTA teachers who says: Having had teaching problems in 2018-19, we are looking at different ways of keeping our students happy, and so far, this has been successful. We currently have 40 students between…
  • Here is a question we received from one of our EBTA teachers: Having purchased a new lap-top, I have been trying to install Hand Generator now for several weeks. I have tied a range of browsers, including the recommendation for Firefox, but with…
  • Our new Book 1 Beginning Bridge includes a short explanation of weak overcalls with long suits (i.e. weak jump overcalls). At this point in the students' learning journey the purpose is to get students involved in competitive bidding and understand…
  • Anyone who clicks on “Teach Bridge” on the main menu will see the next screen with the link. @Strongjim said: There really should be a direct link to this forum on the EBED site. There used to be a three clicks rule for websites; if a new …
  • This is going to be a great discussion so I hope we have lots of people joining in! Whatever happens, we know that beginners need a keep it simple approach and some struggle with the difference of one over one and two over one responses. T…
  • Try the little wheel in the top right of the screen. You should get a list of notification preferences. Then tick the relevant box. @tonys said: Is it possible to have a setting in a forum for you to get a notification email when someone post…
