Our year in review – the summer edition

29th December 2019

Summer! It was a busy period for us and we had a great time celebrating with all of our students. Read about what we got up to in our year in review – the summer edition, here.

CEA BBQ 2019



  • Celtic hosted their annual BBQ for staff and students. Everyone had a great time celebrating our 15 year anniversary in the sun!
  • Our Junior Summer Programme officially started in Bangor, North Wales. It was a huge success offering young people the chance to learn English, make new friends and visit new places. With our peak weeks hitting numbers of just over 62 students we welcomed young people from all over the world. Our unique destination offered on-site and off-site activities that gave the programme a great variety.
  • Celtic took students to Tenby for a day excursion – this is just one of the many different trips we try to organize for our students!
  • Celtic hosted a five-a-side football tournament for staff and students to join

  • In August we welcomed Monttinee from Thailand; Monttinee was granted a scholarship presented to Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn by Celtic English Academy in collaboration with International Education Consultants Association in Thailand. Staying with us for 8 weeks Monttinee had many wonderful things to say about Cardiff after she left; it was a real pleasure to meet her!
  • Our Junior Summer Programme came to an end in August; we made some great friends and spent the summer in the sun, learning English and experiencing new things. We remain grateful for the summer staff that joined our programme and wish them well for the new year.
  • With a heavy heart, Celtic waved goodbye to Steve, who worked at Celtic for three years.
