    The Disney Approach – Immersive Storytelling

    With the culmination of over 70 years of published language learning materials, Disney has perfected an approach designed to appeal to a range of different learning styles. Teachers incorporate role plays, songs, movement, games and storytelling with the latest educational technology to fully engage students in a memorable and effective learning experience.


    Course material features Disney characters throughout and places 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.

    The Schools

    Entering a Disney 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.
