The best way to learn to play bridge

Of course you can learn to play a game from friends or family, but there's nothing like having a professional teacher in an entertaining class to get a great foundation in a game.

In the first class you'll learn the mechanics of playing a bridge hand, and much of the language of bridge: contract, tricks, trump, notrump, opening lead, following suit, discarding, declarer.

In the following lessons you'll learn the basics of a bidding system called Standard American 5-card Majors. You'll also learn techniques for winning more tricks as you play the hand or defend a contract.

To accompany the class you'll have the text and workbook Bridge Basics I - Introduction by Audrey Grant.

No bridge experience required, no partner required. If you've played a little bridge, this class is a great way to refresh your knowledge of the game.
