Eleni Petraki has a passion for language teaching and language teacher education. She has extensive international language teaching experience in countries such as Greece, UK, USA, Australia, Vietnam,  and Singapore. She has been a language teacher educator for more than 15 years and worked mainly in the TESOL field. She has been teaching  in the TESOL program at the University of Canberra more than 10 years and has taught many of the subjects.
