Geka Bessy

During her studies, Bessy has been awarded both scholarships and prizes of Record Achievement by the State Foundation of Scholarships (ΙΚΥ) and the Department of Bequests of the University of Athens respectively. Bessy has been a member of the Executive Board of TESOL Greece, and she has also served as the vice-chair of the organization twice. She is a CAMLA examiner for all CEFR levels and an EFL teacher since 2008. She started teaching at HAU in 2010 and she is currently one of the two Academic Coordinators of the English Language Programme of HAU as well as a research associate of the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens.
Bessy is also a teacher trainer of the TESOL Education Centre of HAEC and a professor at the Hellenic Police Academy. Her academic interests are quite diverse, ranging from teacher training, EFL Didactics and Applied Linguistics to more theoretical aspects of language. The main focus of her research endeavours, however, appears to be Cognitive Linguistics and the influence of Construction Grammar on other aspects of language and language pedagogy.
