INTEGRATED SKILLS CLASS (AM)
During the morning session, students study four English skills - reading, writing, speaking and listening - through a “Communicative Language Teaching” methodology. New grammar patterns are learned in the context of a conversation or a real-life situation. Students also use various activities to practice English conversation including listening tasks, role plays, and discussions. Practical reading and writing tasks and vocabulary studies are presented as well in our 6 available levels. Students can begin on any Monday.
ACTIVE LISTENING CLASS (PM)
During the afternoon session, students will cover a variety of topics while practicing English conversation management, North American conversational styles, and pronunciation. Students learn commonly-used idioms and slang in a communicative way. Teachers also use various activities to practice these new idioms including listening tasks, role play, and discussion.
Students will choose 1 level-appropriate elective class that most interests them and/or most benefits their English goals. We offer a variety of elective classes including TOEFL iBT Test Preparation, TOEIC Test Preparation, IELTS Test Preparation, Academic Writing, Business English/French, Pronunciation, Communicative Grammar, Power Speaking, and others.
A GEOS English class features a comprehensive curriculum with a focus on oral communication - speaking and listening. Well trained and highly qualified instructors help students improve their conversation skills through a variety of creative activities. There are six different levels of study, from beginner through advanced. A placement test helps us find the best class level for each student. At the end of each four-week session, each student will receive a written evaluation and have a one-on-one with one of their teachers. This is how we help you monitor your progress. After each three month semester, students receive a report card, and students receive a GEOS certificate when they finish their course.

The GEOS school is nice! I learned English with people from other countries. I like how I'm learning many interesting items I will know. The teachers are very friendly. The classroom is comfortable. I liked meeting with our teachers and young people from other countries. Break-coffee is very good because we speak and listen. And California is very scenic. It is very sunny and there are friendly people I will be back soon to GEOS because I want to speak English.
