About

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.

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. ... [-]
