The Homestay Voice is an opportunity to glance into the experiences of our homestay who are welcoming International students here in Cardiff. This testimonial is a first-hand reflection of the impression on our homestay provider for hosting students in their home.

At Celtic English Academy we value our homestay' feedback, opinions and experience always using them to refine and improve the experiences for our future students.

Cooking together.

My Italian student used to make her traditional and tasty lasagna. 

My previous student from Budapest made his typical dishes.

My other Japanese student made for me a lovely tempura meal.

Would your recommend hosting students to other people? 

Yes, definitely.


My son used to welcome students in the past. Unfortunately, he now lives too far.

I would highly recommend many relatives to welcome international students.
