    Everyone remembers NOVA? They essentially got taken over by G. Communications and now we have GEOS going belly up.

    Could this be another influx of out-of-work foreigners, flooding the market further?

    I don't teach English but have friends that do... only can wait and watch to see what transpires!

    Don't know whether I should laugh or just shrug my shoulders and say: "Figures."

    I only have one friend that's teaching English as a regular job, but he doesn't work for GEOS or G.Communications. I'll have to check in with him to see how things are going. Letsjapan.org has had a number of threads going predicting/discussing the demise of G. Communications and GEOS. Refer to my statement above. (Figures!)

    Just saw this on the news ticker, English schools are indeed a dying breed. :(

    Once a great way to come to this country, that glory ended long ago.
