Residence reviews

I lived in CELT accommodation for 3 months it was convenient and served by main facilities. I had a great experience due to meeting many students from different nationalities where shared a living room and Kitchen together which it helped me to improve my English.

I studied in CELT for 3 months, during that time I was helped to improve my English skills by qualified teachers. Moreover, CELT has friendly administrative staff who are willing to help students anytime. Finally, I would say that CELT offers an intimate environment which helps students to develop their language.
