Grace and I are the owners and directors of CELT and have been running the school since 1989. We are both qualified EFL teachers and have many years’ experience teaching abroad and in the UK. Originally from San Francisco, USA, Grace is our Academic Director and started her teaching career in Italy. I am the Principal of the school and taught in Spain, France, and La Réunion (Indian Ocean) before returning to Cardiff to teach English at Cardiff University. Cardiff is my hometown and, after returning here, I realised the huge potential of the city as a wonderful destination for foreign students to come and learn English. That’s why we created CELT!
As teachers, we care passionately about our students’ learning experience and do everything we can to ensure that students benefit fully from their time with us.
We hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you here to our school. Before that, you can find out about our mission for CELT by reading our mission statement below.
