The future of ESL

disney has ESL schools in Shanghai, China.   As a teacher who personally emphasizes 'edutainment' even for my university classes, I think the schools will do well, financially and in actually having students leave the school with a strong command of English.

I am of mixed feelings, though, in how I feel about the school.  I think everyone in the modern age is suspicious of large companies and Disney just about defines 'large'.

Still, I do expect it to work, regardless of what else it teaches.

Here is the site.

Really? You expect to be teaching long into the future?

I certainly don't expect to work for Disney, although I gotta say I think it'd be fun.
