Celtic English Academy

Introduction

Celtic English Academy is a British Council accredited, English language centre.

We offer English classes with an excellent small student to staff ratio as classes are limited to a maximum of just 10 students. This provides a friendly student-focused learning environment, ensuring that each student will get the attention that he or she needs to succeed.

Did you know?

  • We are accredited by the British Council and ISI and are members of English UK.
  • 98% of our students say that they would recommend Celtic English Academy to their friends and family.
  • In the summer of 2015, we had students of up to 50 different nationalities studying with us.

Cardiff’s convenient whereabouts also make it easy for students to explore more of the UK by train or bus. It is a low-cost, cosmopolitan city that has one of Europe’s biggest shopping centres, is a former Olympic venue and is the 2014 European Capital of Sport.

Our Name

Formerly known as Celtic School, we renewed our name to match our new identity:

Celtic reflects the cultural heritage of our location. We kept this part of our name because Celtic English Academy has gained a good reputation through word of mouth as Celtic School. We want our renewed brand to benefit from this.

English is the product we are selling. The word has power as a product and is a symbol of opportunity for those who wish to learn it.

Academy is a more prestigious word than school. Schools are often associated with a younger audience and compulsory attendance. An academy gives the vision of students growing and advancing and is more in keeping with our quality education, accessible to all ages.
