Marisa Constantinides is the Director of Studies of CELT Athens and is responsible for the design and implementation of all the programmes offered by CELT.
Marisa's main qualifications related to teaching are the RSA Diploma in TEFLA (DTEFLA), a precursor to the Cambridge DELTA Diploma, and an M.A. in Applied Linguistics from the University of Reading in the UK. Her involvement in Teacher Development Programmes started at the Hellenic American Union where she ran workshops for colleagues and State School Teachers, then with Longman Publications running numerous training seminars for them all over Greece.
From 1982 to 1989, she trained teachers for Mrs.Gina Pagoulatou-Vlachou's school. During that period she also collaborated with the PALSO Federation, designing and running the first series of organised courses for language schools owners and their teachers in Greece.
From 1989-1993 she ran CELT with partners, training teachers and teaching adults on general and ESP courses, and as of September 1993, Marisa has been running CELT Athens on her own, mostly training teachers of English and supporting Diploma in Translation candidates.
Marisa Constantinides has written materials for children (Basic Grammar Workbooks 1, 2, & 3 published by English Schoolbook Publications), activity books for Cambridge Exams set texts, and numerous articles on Language, Foreign Language Teaching and Education.
