The Year of the Mouse

The Walt Disney Co. begins opening English-language schools for children in China, starting in Shanghai:

The small English-immersion classes are given by tutors from North America and bilingual assistants at the school on Maoming Road with seven charming theme rooms. There's singing, interactive games, role-play and plenty of fun.

The classes are open to students aged two to 10. Classes average only 12 and each child receives individual attention.

The program includes relevant vocabulary, sentence patterns and common topics in daily Chinese conversation.
