Play and Learn Bridge I: A Course for Absolute Beginners
8 sessions, 20 hours
If you have always wanted to learn to play Bridge, this is the class for you. This course is designed for those who have never played the game or for those who may have played some Contract Bridge long ago but have since forgotten most of it. Lessons focus on bidding and play of the cards by the students. The first few sessions introduce the students to the idea of taking tricks both in trump and no-trump contracts. Later sessions address opening bids, and the responses to opening bids. No text is required. Students will be provided with handouts for use in class and for study at home. A shorter version of this class has been offered in previous terms. This longer class was developed in recognition of student preferences.
Instructor: Robert M. Freed has three passions: music, bridge, and teaching.
