About Us

GEOS Language Centre was established on 02 September 1997 at Orchard Tower in Singapore. The core business of the school focused on English classes for the Japanese housewives and businessmen who reside in Singapore. Such service was then extended to Koreans in the early 2000s. Thereafter, the school started to venture into a more International market in the mid 2000s. To date, apart from Japanese and Korean students, we have had students from Russia, Brazil, Spain, Italy, France, Thailand, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Turkey, Vietnam and even South Africa. In 2013, GEOS schools in ASIA were acquired by Yoshihan Co Ltd and FVC Advisor Ltd; both are well established companies specialize in a wide variety of businesses.

GEOS Star Student

Hironari Matsumoto - Japan

I had a two week class in GEOS Singapore this time, Mainly, I learned English that can use in business. The class was so active. I couldn’t speak English so well but I challenged to speak it because of that. I want to learn English in GEOS Singapore again.

Jung Su Rin (Korea)

While I've been learning English in GEOS, I've improved my English impressively. Teachers I've met here are wonderful and approachable. Also, I could see they make a lot of effort to teach their students.

Every lesson is full of useful English so that I can acquire a lot of expressions, grammar, vocabulary. Also, there are many chances that I can get a correction and feedback. In addition, the staffs are friendly and nice and they are willing to help students! Luckily, most students I've met here are highly motivated so it made me carry on studying English hard. I'm happy that I've learned English here and finally I can see I've achieved a lot! Thank you GEOS!!
