Super-Intensive Program (40 Lessons/week)
GEOS offers a Super-Intensive English Program (and French in Montreal) for those students wishing to study at an accelerated pace. During the morning and the afternoon the students will join the Intensive English Course and after that they will join an elective course available at that time, such as TOEFL preparation, academic writing, pronunciation, etc.
Integrated Skills focuses on the four main 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 will engage in various activities to practice English including listening tasks, role playing, and stimulating discussions. Practical reading and writing tasks and vocabulary studies are presented as well in our 6 available levels.
In Active Listening, students will cover a variety of topics while practicing English conversation management, conversational styles, and pronunciation. Students learn commonly-used idioms and slang in a communicative way. Teachers also use various activities to introduce students to these new idioms including listening tasks, role playing, and context-relevant discussions. There are 6 different levels available for students.
Students of the Super-Intensive English Program are able to choose an elective course that interests them and/or benefits their English goals. We offer a variety of courses including TOEFL iBT Test Preparation, TOEIC Test Preparation, IELTS Test Preparation, Academic Writing, Business English/French, Pronunciation, and others.

A GEOS English/French 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 to highly proficient. A placement test helps us place each student in the appropriate level. 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 program/course.
