Courses in Languages. About

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. ... [-]

Program Overview

The University Center (www.universityprep.com) is an intensive, comprehensive ESL and university preparatory boarding school. We help international students prepare for English language and academic success at great American universities.

The Value of University Prep for International Students

Why should international students spend 4 or 8 months in a university preparatory program at The University Center? Our university prep program increases academic and cultural competency, saves time and money, enhances admissions qualifications, and prepares students to get more out of their US university experience.

According to the latest statistics from IPEDS (to which all American universities must report), over 50% of international students studying in the USA take longer than necessary to complete their bachelor’s degrees. (Many "pathway” students are probably taking longer, based on preliminary evidence, but universities are not required to report these graduation rates.)... [-]
