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 how to pronounce it 😋

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 15 years 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 for a bit. 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 🙄 My husband works for some obscure car company – no idea what they do! #gosauber 😜

We are relative newcomers to Glarus as we previously lived in Zürcher Oberland where I taught and tutored kids between the ages of three and sixteen. Needing more space in the summer of 2015, we packed up the kids and moved to Bilten, Glarus.

After a few years, I decided to turn my love for English and teaching into an actual job and completed my EFL qualification (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) in 2016. In August 2017, I started English-with-Bridget, ran my first Beginner Course and I’ve never looked back. Then in June 2022, I completed my CELTA qualification (Certificate of English Language Teaching for Adults) and in August 2022, English-with-Bridget turned a ripe old age of five 🥳

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.
