This specialized program is designed for students aged 16 to 21 years old. It consists of enrolling in either a standard or intensive English program that runs throughout the morning hours. Students then spend their afternoons and evenings participating in various cultural activities within the New York area. All activities in the Junior Program are supervised by Group leaders who have been specially trained by GEOS. They are typically between the ages of 21 and 30 years old and come from many different places.
GEOS offers several international student accommodation options. They will receive breakfast, dinner and a packed lunch on a daily basis. It’s a great program that combines language and cultural learning, along with lots of fun activities!
International Student Accommodations
It is our goal to provide our international students with the accommodations they need to succeed. While classroom instruction is a pillar of our teaching methodology, we also strongly vouch for the notion of cultural immersion as being integral in the process of learning a new language. Our two accommodation options strive to promote that dichotomy: Homestay and Private Residence.
At GEOS Languages Plus New York, we believe students are more likely to succeed when they feel comfortable in their immediate surroundings. The majority of our students live with host families that are extremely welcoming, encouraging and accommodating. Prior to enlisting in our homestay program, each family goes through a rigorous screening process with one of our coordinators and are evaluated in a variety of categories. It is our mission to ensure our students are living in safe areas, in clean homes or apartments with thoughtful and understanding families.
Living with a New York host family is a once in a lifetime experience, a window into the local culture, and an extension beyond the GEOS classroom walls in which the student experiences day-to-day life with typical Americans. The experiences that will help shape your entire stay in New York!
GEOS also offers rooms within an international student residence in the New York area. The residence offers modern amenities such as activity rooms, a fitness center, and Laundry facilities all on-site. Many residences offer complementary activities that allow students to meet one another. Students who choose this option prefer more independence, but still, have a high level of security. No matter which accommodation you choose, GEOS will ensure that your stay will be comfortable and memorable!
