Disney English opened its first language training school in Shanghai, China back in 2008. Since then schools have been opened in 14 major cities around China including Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin, Hangzhou and Suzhou. For more details on specific school locations please have a look here.
Disney English offers a modern learning environment, cutting edge interactive white boards in all the classrooms as well as a huge variety of engaging course material all centered around popular Disney characters and stories. The communicative and engaging teaching style has proved to be really popular with students, aged 2 to 12 years old and positive comments from parents and education professionals alike have been very encouraging indeed.
Below are some Disney English reviews, testimonials and comments from ESL industry experts and professionals.
“Disney is sincere, responsible and principled in all they do, which makes me feel wonderful about working with Disney English. It’s so much fun to see children feeling happy while learning.”
Author for children’s English textbooks at Oxford University Press Trainer for Disney English trainers
“I find that when Disney characters and stories appear, children become so happy that they forget they are actually being taught. So Disney characters can make children feel they are playing, but they are in fact learning. For them, it is all so natural.”
Artist and illustrator for children’s books at Disney
“What I appreciate about Disney English is that it encourages and promotes creativity. It delivers linguistic training scientifically based on its research. All English words compiled in their textbooks are based on careful linguistic studies.”
Dr. Dilin Liu
Professor of English and Coordinator of Applied Linguistics/TESOL program in the Department of English at the University of Alabama
“The entire set of training materials shows its great potential for teaching Chinese children. Fabulous music, fantastic stories and multimedia programs work very well for each child’s age and interest.”

“It’s wonderful for any child to experience the interactive learning process here! The programs are well focused, rich in content and progress in great form. It’s miraculous to see the movement of images from IWB (interactive white boards) to the projection wall. Learners here not only study English, but also experience the cutting edge of learning techniques.”
