Disney English China
Teaching English in China at a Disney English 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.
Disney English in China have put together an exceptional collection of unique course material which 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 comprehensive teachers’ guides. All this makes teaching English in China a really enjoyable experience and allows you to create truly engaging and effective lessons.
Each classroom is fitted with an interactive white board & digital presentation wall which are packed full of animated teaching material, helping to further enrich the student-centered learning environment.
