Immersive Storytelling Approach

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 with breakthrough teaching methodology to spark a child’s passion for learning English. Since the opening of our flagship center in Shanghai in 2008, Disney English has been delivering an award-winning curriculum based on innovative technologies and beloved Disney characters to children throughout China. With an interactive learning process that immerses them in their favorite Disney stories, songs and characters, Disney English creates a fun, lively, and effective learning environment.

Course materials feature Disney characters throughout and place an emphasis on natural English communication. They are 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.

The Schools

Entering a Disney school is like walking into a mini-Disneyland, students are surrounded by all their favourite Disney characters. 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.

Support & Development at Every Step

From the moment you become part of the Disney English team you will have the very best in support and training, that Disney is famous for. Beginning with a one week paid training program, you will be provided with an overview of Disney history, an introduction to Disney English and a full TEFL-C (Teaching English as a Foreign Language – to Children) course. You will become familiar with teaching methodologies, learn how to use interactive white boards and other educational technologies and will be introduced to the curriculum and school procedures.

The training does not stop there. On-going teacher training includes regular workshops, seminars and idea share sessions run by the Language Learning Director. Class observations are also arranged as a way to learn from different teaching styles first hand. Disney English also arranges online training seminars as well as opportunities for trainers to attend larger workshops held in Shanghai on a regular basis.
