English Courses and Accommodation

U20 Courses in Vancouver

Our English school in Vancouver offers both standard and intensive English courses. Classes take place Monday to Friday in both mornings and afternoons. You can choose between 4 (Standard Course) and 6 lessons (Intensive Course) per day, during which students are encouraged and given the support needed to express themselves confidently and communicate freely in English. We try to imbue students with the idea that mistakes are nothing to be ashamed of, and are an essential part of the learning process. Therefore, students are encouraged to take part in discussions and to remember: Practice makes perfect!

Our English lessons are taught by dedicated and motivated teachers with plenty of enthusiasm for teaching English to teenagers. They structure their classes based around developing grammar, reading, writing, listening, vocabulary and most importantly, conversation. We believe constant practice in speaking a language leads to confidence and increased fluency, as well as helping to commit new information to memory. The lessons include practice through communicative tasks, project work and intercultural activities, according to the needs of individuals and groups. All classes develop and extend knowledge of grammar and vocabulary and improve communicative skills.

Geos Teamers

GEOS' school in Vancouver take caring for our young students very seriously. We carefully select our teamers who guide and watch over their students.

Our trained and friendly teamers offer students in their care individual attention as each teamer is responsible for a maximum of 15 students. Teamers are 21 years old or older, have excellent English-speaking skills and are trained in areas like supervision, entertainment, problem-solving, First Aid and teamwork.

We choose our teamers not only for their experience and qualifications, but also their personality, creativity, initiative and sense of responsibility. Prior to the start of the U20 program all teamers go through training seminars held over 2-4 days. The candidates are continuously observed throughout the seminar and later in their practical work in the school.

Know your teamers

  • T-Shirts: Our teamers always wear Sprachcaffe Teamer t-shirts and are therefore easily recognisable.
  • Dealing with Problems: The teamers are responsible for their students' well-being. They seek to deal with all problems or questions quickly and efficiently.
  • Language: Although most of our teamers are not native English speakers, they speak English at all times, both with students and with each other. This helps to promote the use of the language among students and to improve our students' English speaking skills. As our teamers come from many different countries, however, most students will be able to find at least one teamer that can speak his/her language in an emergency.

Are you interested, but would like further advice in a personal meeting? We look forward to hearing from you!
