The method used at Disney English is known as the Disney Immersive Storytelling Approach (ISA). The ISA is based on the theory of multiple intelligences and entails using experiential learning in the classroom. Teachers, called Foreign Trainers, use a variety of interactive activities, songs, visual materials and movement to capture students’ attention and show them that learning is fun! In-class learning is combined with home study materials and online tools to provide a comprehensive learning experience for all students.
