I came to GEOS Torrance 4 months ago, and

my English has improved significantly since then.

I studied English in Brazil for three years, but

only focused on grammar. There was no

pronunciation, listening, or speaking. Now I can

understand what people talk about and buy

things I want from the supermarket. The

teachers here at Torrance are very attentive and

experienced, especially John and Jeanne. I get

all the support I need from GEOS staff.

Our Services

GEOS Los Angeles offers a variety of services to students.


During the first two weeks of study, all new students will

be asked to take part in an academic counseling session

with the school's academic staff. Students will have the

opportunity to discuss and work out any problems or

concerns they may be having with their studies.


The Homestay Coordinator is always here to help students

with any issues, questions, and problems they might be

having with their homestay family. They are always willing to

take time to listen to the students’ requests and concerns.

Students come first!


Each month there is something to do almost every day at

GEOS. We offer free after-school activities Monday-Thursday

for students that want extra practice speaking English. The

activities are: Sing the Lyrics, Coffee Talk, Words in the

News, Pronunciation Practice, Slang and Idioms, and Ask a

Teacher. In addition to these free after-school activities, we

offer planned, weekend excursions. One weekend you could

visit Mickey Mouse at Disneyland and the next weekend you

could go to Universal Studios! If an activity or excursion isn’t

on the current calendar, we are always taking suggestions

from the students. There is always something to do here at

GEOS Torrance - Los Angeles and we’re here to help you

have fun!


At the end of each four-week session, students enrolled in

our full time programs participate in an individual counseling

session with their teacher. Students receive a report card with

their grades and comments from teachers about their

performance during the month. During these counseling

sessions students also set goals with their teachers.

My family talked a lot with me and tried to

teach me different things. They are very good

people and they always try to make me feel

at home. They also make sure that I have

breakfast, and we have dinner together at

least 5 days a week. So that is very

important. I have much fun with my host

family as well.

I’ve been having a great time at GEOS. I

met many people and from these people I

could experience different cultures and

languages. It is a great experience for me.

Furthermore, studying English with great

American teachers is what I really want.
