The weather in Los Angeles has been perfect spring weather and we are very excited for the fast-approaching summer! The school has been very busy this past April. More details of what we've been doing can be found below in the School Activities section.

The activity visiting the LA Galaxy was such a success that we have decided to do it again! May 7th we will be watching them play again! We are also re-starting Pizza Day Wednesday! Twice a month the students will be provided with social mixer at lunchtime and Pizza will be provided for everyone to enjoy! We also have our Coffee Talk with Jeanne every Wednesday! The students and staff all take a 30 minute break to sit and enjoy each other’s company, have a cup of coffee, enjoy a treat, and talk about a specific topic.
We are beginning to prepare for a very busy summer. Our Holiday Groups Program preparation is in full-swing and we are very excited! The classes will be a great mixture of nationalities and the trips around Los Angeles are going to be so much fun!
The students asked, and we have listened! Student ID Cards are now available! Get Student Discounts on Food, Bus Rides, and much more!
Cost: $25 for the first card and $35 for replacement cards
Currently we have 10 Nationalities represented in the school among our 139 Students. We extend a warm welcome to all the students studying English with us!
I have studied English in my own country, but come to Geos academy has been a really different experience because of the various opportunities that I have to improving my English. First of all, here I have had the advantage to be in a completely English environment, because I have native speakers teachers, the family in the homestay and all the people that I know outside Geos, and this also make you improving your English because you get use to thinking in English all the time. On the other hand the TOEFL course that I am taking is great, because it has more emphasis in the skills than in specific grammar topics. For me this is a big advantage, because I want to take the TOEFL and in this test they ask for skills but not for specific grammar. You probably can have a good grammar but if you do not have the proper skills, you will not be able to answer it, and that is why i think this course is great.

The students and staff went to go watch David Beckham and the LA Galaxy play an awesome soccer game!
The students from Saudi Arabia also hosted a wonderful lunch and introduced the other students and the GEOS staff to many types of wonderful Saudi food!
We started using the new edition of the Top Notch books! The students and staff are very happy with the change and the books are a wonderful resource!
Please our new teacher, Rene Luna!
Hi, I’m Rene. I’m quite happy to be at GEOS L.A. I’m a veteran language learner and teacher. After earning a M.ED. in TESOL in Japan, I remained in Tokyo teaching at the university level. I enjoy walking my dog, Max, twice a day. He’s trilingual, like me.
It’s with great sadness that we announce that our Registrar, Alissa Olgun will be pursuing other opportunities as of May 13th, 2011. She’s helped GEOS immensely and we will miss her.
