How did you hear about Celtic English Academy?

Through the HR department at work. As a German citizen I am entitled to a Bildungsurlaub (educational holiday) of up to 5 days a year. Over 2 years I saved up 10 days of Bildungsurlaub. As Celtic English Academy is an approved Bildungsurlaub centre, I decided to book a course!

What is Bildungsurlaub and how can other German students get it?

Bildungsurlaub (BU) is an educational holiday which all German employees are eligible for, depending on the state. It’s so easy to get approval, simply contact your employer, choose an approved Bildungsurlaub centre and collect your certificate at the end of your studies!

Would you recommend Celtic English Academy to your friend and family?

I will, because I loved being here. I got to know so many friendly, interesting and unique people and learned a lot about other countries and cultures. Was amazing, Thank you! I would love to come back again.
