Geos, JTB to Start English Study Camps

English conversation school Geos is to team up with a major travel company to create an opportunity to "study abroad" without leaving Japan. "Tobidase! English Camp" will provide a foreign environment for students unable to travel overseas, with native English-speaking teachers provided by Geos and travel, accommodation and meals organized by Japan Travel Bureau. JTB is a leading provider of school tours but has had to come up with new strategies in the face of the nation's declining birthrate and the increased difficulty of overseas tours. The new service is expected to start in July, with applications being accepted from this spring. The sales target for the first year is 300 customers.
