GEOS, the international language education institute was founded in 1973 in Japan. GEOS stands for "Global Educational Opportunities and Services" and is aimed to provide language learning opportunities in different countries. Our schools can be found in Europe, America, and Asia, and GEOS students from America, Canada, Singapore, Germany, and Thailand represent a diverse student body from different nationalities, colors, and races.
The first GEOS branch in Taiwan was established on Zhongxiao Road in Taipei in 1991, offering English, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean courses. GEOS have since accumulated 27 years of professional educational experience. We may not be the largest school on the market, but we are most passionate about education and always aim to become the best language school in Taiwan. It has always been our goal to provide students with the best instructors, most professional management, and the latest, most interesting classes and personalized services. We would like to thank our students and customers for their support, and GEOS will move forward with its original vision providing the best and most comprehensive education.

GEOS is committed to use only the best, professional international teaching materials in addition to GEOS exclusive training material. Our students can learn the best native expressions and the best English/Japanese idioms. We employee a methodology that allows students learn their target language using that language, so they can avoid thinking in their native tongue. This ensures that students can avoid Taiwanese style English/Japanese/Korean. In addition to language learning, focus is also given to culture understanding. GEOS promotes an immersive learning environment that will make you feel like you are abroad.
GEOS is committed to hiring only native speaking instructors so that our students can be exposed to the most authentic pronunciation and learn the most current vocabulary and idioms. GEOS firmly believes that the nuances of a language can only be taught best with a native speaking instructor.
GEOS teachers come from the US, Canada, England, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Japan, and Korea. Our teachers are not only well-versed in teaching foreign students, in addition, they may only become certified GEOS teacher after a three-month training and evaluation period from our teaching department. The teachers also must pass the evaluation with high scores. Each teacher are still subject to monthly trainings and workshops after certification and re-evaluation every 3 month to ensure they are always at the best. Finally, teachers who receive great evaluation feedback from the teaching department will also have the opportunities to travel to other GEOS branches to experience the impact of different culture on language teaching.
GEOS have adopted a one-teacher-per-class system, so that each teacher will get to know their students well. This ensures that the teachers can have a firm grasp on each student's strength and weakness to further offer advice on improvements on their weakness.
