Program Description

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.

Our Standard English Program provides students with insight into the language and how to apply effective methods of communication at an accelerated pace.

Classes generally finish in the early afternoon (usually before 1 pm), giving students the opportunity to enjoy the majority of their afternoon sightseeing and discovering the city and local culture.

Standard English includes 20 lessons per week (15 hours).

Note: Students must register for a minimum of 2 weeks.
