RAY PARKER: English Language Teaching Consultant

Ray has been involved in English Language Teaching since graduating in Hispanic Studies in the late 60’s. The bulk of his time is now devoted to teacher education and training teacher trainers. He has taught, trained and examined teachers in 34 countries and co-authored a well-known teachers’ textbook on the phonology and pronunciation of English and a course book published in Italy. In his career he has been teacher, Director of Studies, College Principal, Senior Lecturer, Director of Language Examinations, Inspector of English Language Schools and consultant. His focus now lies with teacher training and ELT project management with a particular interest in in-service professional development for non-native English speaking teachers and in the development of confidence about English Language systems in native speaker teachers.


Ray will do his best to reveal the secret of successful English language pronunciation learning and teaching! The good news is that this is not technical or complicated. He will quickly establish with you the typical components of an English language pronunciation syllabus and then discuss with you the order in which we might want to teach these elements and the relative priorities that they deserve.
He will then go on to clarify the important connection in English between grammar and pronunciation. Also with a particular focus on the grammatically determined role of stress in normal speech.

“The CLIL CHALLENGE” – Where does the challenge lie in the CLIL classroom?
Starting with the basics of CLIL, the lecture will point out a number of features which make the CLIL classroom at once highly challenging and rewarding. Thus the talk will cover the main features of CLIL and the strategies the CLIL teacher needs to master in a CLIL class.

During her time in Italy, she’s written 10 variations of popular fairytales with original scores and songs, not to mention hundreds of theatrical sketches, workshops and didactic materials for actors, tutors and teachers. She’s trained thousands of facilitators including; tutors and camp directors for English summer camps; actors from around the globe for TIE tours; teachers of English in various countries from all scholastic levels.

Aspire to Inspire has always been her motto!


EDUCO’s methodology follows the theories (and results) of many accredited linguists and classroom practitioners. This workshop will explore these theories using scripts, songs and drama based language activities, with emotions as the engine and drama techniques as the vehicle.
Using Educo’s holistic approach to learning, TEATRINO has for many years entertained and motivated students through TIE. TEATRINO puts into practice the theory that second language teaching should focus on encouraging ‘natural’ acquisition and providing input that emotionally stimulates the learner. The experience is memorable because the students are emotionally involved and having fun! With TEATRINO students acquire the linguistic skills they need for communication without realizing they are learning.
Drama is a learning medium rooted in a child’s experience of play and has a fundamental and valid place as a powerful ESL teaching tool. Educational practices and developments are definitely a ‘work in progress’, so lose your inhibitions, have fun, and Aspire to Inspire!
