TY Bridge the Gap teacher testimonial

“I am very impressed with Bridge the Gap English, particularly the leaving cert links. The language is appropriate, and the content is relevant and up to date. I also like the mix of emphasis on social media and politics. There is just enough material which allows for a quick approach.”
