Courses are academic classes taught by qualified instructors that are intended to enhance participant’s knowledge of a given area or training in a particular discipline. Courses vary broadly in terms of length, size, content and duration.
English courses tend to focus on the study of English literacy, comprehension and analysis, and often concentrate on developing essential speech and communication skills for ESL speakers to increase proficiency and comfort with the English language.

Studying English is like learning to play a musical instrument. Whether you want to learn how to speak English or how to improve reading
English, the more you practice - especially spoken English, the better you get at all the other skills. It's a simple principle. It's still a lot of work, but if you follow that, you will be successful.
Most ESL classes spend too much time learning English grammar. It's true that grammar is important, but learning language is like learning to swim. You can't do it by reading a book -- you have to practice!
GEOS' ESL courses are designed to give students more practice.
GEOS students have English classes every day for just Speaking and Listening.
Because GEOS has more English speaking classes, our students learn English faster.

What Legal English is; What Legal English isn’t.
Legal English is an After-School Course designed to introduce students to the American judicial and legislative systems. Its focus is the vocabulary and terminology of the U. S. legal system. Students will discuss various branches of law, study landmark cases and visit a local courthouse to view legal proceedings. Legal English is not a law course and therefore, students can expect their instructor to focus on legal language and know U. S. law in general terms, rather than in detail.
Who teaches Legal English?
Legal English is taught by an experienced English language instructor. Although this course is taught by someone who may not have a legal background, it will be taught by a skilled NESE teacher who is able to give you an understanding of legal language....
