Teach English in China - Disney English

The Disney Approach – Immersive Storytelling
No one speaks the language of children better than Disney, and nothing captures their imaginations more than a great story. Disney English combines the art of Disney storytelling, breakthrough language learning methodology and innovative technology to inspire learners’ passion for English. Since the opening of our flagship Center in Shanghai in 2008, Disney English has been sharing the gift of English with thousands of children across China. By providing an award-winning academic curriculum and engaging children aged 2 to 12 years old with their favorite Disney stories, songs and characters; Disney English creates a fun, lively, and highly effective learning environment.
Course materials feature Disney characters throughout and place an emphasis on natural English communication. It is backed up with an amazing array of supplementary materials to really bring the class to life, from flashcards, an entire room full of realia, song CDs, games, digital material, toys and a comprehensive teacher’s guide.
Each classroom is fitted with an interactive white board & digital presentation wall which is packed full of animated teaching material helping to further enrich the student-centered learning environment.
Class sizes are small to ensure all students receive the personal guidance and attention they need to get the most from their learning experience.
Entering a Disney English school is like walking into a mini-Disneyland, students are surrounded by all their favourite Disney characters and locations. Each classroom is based on the theme of a Disney story - imagine flying around Andy’s bedroom with Buzz Lightyear, swimming the oceans with Nemo and exploring the jungles with Simba.
