Hello everyone!

My name is Christina Nicole Giannikas and I am the founder of CG Education & Research Consultancy.

I am an Educational & Research Consultant, a teacher trainer, an applied linguist, an online tutor, researcher, materials writer and editor.

 

I am actively involved in the field of Teacher Education and train pre-service/in-service ELT teachers in Higher Education. I have also been Chair of the EuroCALL Teacher Education SIG for the last four years and the EuroCALL National Contact for Greece. As a consultant, I have worked  with publishers, Ministries of Education and educational institutions worldwide. I also work in Higher Education where I lecture courses in Applied Linguistics.

My research interests are based in the field of Applied Linguistics, specializing in the areas of Early Language Learning, Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL), policies in language education, and professional development in ELT. I have published in these fields extensively and have presented my work at local and international conferences and online events.
