About Me

If you haven’t figured it out yet… I’m Bridget 😊  Bridget Höpperger. Let’s not get stuck on the last name… it took me forever to learn to pronounce it too 😋

I hail from a little city at the most southern tip of Africa, you might have heard of it… it’s called Cape Town 🤩.

Just over a decade ago, I had the wonderful idea to take a trip to sunny Switzerland (it’s not just snow, you know 😉) and decided I might hang around this beautiful country. Fast-forward a few years and I’m a married to an amazingly supportive husband and the mom to two crazy boys, which in a nutshell, is why my hair is going grey 🙄

We’re relative new-comers to Glarus as we previously lived in Zürcher Oberland where I taught and tutored kids between the ages of three and sixteen. (My husband works for some obscure car company – no idea what they do! #gosauber 😜).

In the summer of 2015, we packed up the kids and moved to Bilten. I decided to take my love for teaching a step further and completed my EFL qualification (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) in 2016.

For the past three years, I have also been the ‘Kinderturnenleiterin‘ here in Bilten.

Now that you know a little more about me, welcome to English with Bridget!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find what you’re looking for. If you’re interested in doing an English course that is not currently on offer but would like to see it on here, please feel free to pop me a message and I’ll see what I can do.
