IALC-accredited English language school Celtic English Academy celebrated their 15th Anniversary last week.
Located in central Cardiff in North Wales, the Academy was joined by a roomful of staff and students to welcome the arrival of the Rt. Honourable Lord Mayor of Cardiff and special guests.
Celtic English Academy has welcomed over 10,000 students from 50+ different nationalities to Wales. Special guests who attended the celebration met with students to learn more about why they are studying English in Cardiff such as Councillor Dan De’Ath, Honorary Consul of Switzerland in Wales – Ruth Thomas-Lehmann, Honorary Consul of Japan in Wales – Keith Dunn OBE and Ifona Deeley, Head of International Relations at the Welsh Government.
The Rt. Honourable Lord Mayor of Cardiff, Councillor Dan De’Ath, expressed that “we have a strong sense of community in Wales and we hope that the students have felt at home in our community of Cardiff during your short or long-term stay here with us.”
The event recognised the value of education, cultural exchange and diversity, as well as the wider economic impact of the Academy in Wales.
Shoko Doherty, Celtic English Academy CEO, who is originally from Japan and came to study in Cardiff 15 years ago at the very academy of which she is now CEO, said: “For Wales in this pre-and post-Brexit period, we need to continue striving to maintain relationships with our European partners as well as partners from around the world, stressing that Wales is welcoming and a safe, friendly and exciting destination for educational tourists of all ages to discover.”
