Greg Skrypiczajko earned a B. Ed. in Teaching English as a Second Language and a M. Sc. in Psycholinguistics and the bilingual mental lexicon.


Greg founded Canadian English Language Services in 1994 while working on his graduate thesis. It is needless to say that Greg has always worn many hats. In addition to working as a teacher and editor for several other organizations, Greg has also offered top-notch English language services over the past decades to newcomers and native speakers alike.

Over the past 25 years, Greg has worked with several local universities and colleges, including University of Alberta's Faculty of Extension, Concordia University of Edmonton, Norquest College, Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers, and Yellowhead Tribal College.

Greg has also worked as a visiting instructor and taught English language courses and researched with cognitive science, linguistics, and psycholinguistics groups at University of Alberta, Korea University, and Seoul National University. He also taught teachers at Seoul National University of Education. With brilliant colleagues at home and abroad, Greg has co-published many scientific papers on bilingual language processing and other topics in language acquisition and psycholinguistics.

More than anything, Greg loves playing with his son and spending time with his family. Camping in the summer and skiing in the winter are the two activities which bring the family together for thrill and adventure, but reading, sports of all sorts, and Lego fill in all the fun time in-between.


"Greg did a great job writing up the program statement for the Kaskitayo Youth Park. His editing skill has helped us with our funding proposals."
