From eslteachersboard.com:

“I have worked for Disney before and understand they are a business and they offer a service to their guests. I know the program is new (started in 2008) and not much is out there from searching the internet except what the company is saying. I would be teaching 20-25 hours weekly and 40 hours at work total. They pay 4,350RMB for housing and 10,000RMB salary monthly. Anyone have advise about Disney English or heard anything negative?”

Don’t know about that pay rate for China…?? They are advertising heavily everywhere – even in upstate New York, which is effectively Nowheresville.

The pay rate seems to compare well compared to most mainland jobs I see advertised.

The British guy who used to be in charge of Shane in Taiwan is in charge of Disney now. He always came across as a pretty sound bloke. I’ve heard that Disney are looking for very big expansion in China, so maybe they would be a decent place to work with possibilities of promotion. Always better to work for an expanding company than the chain schools in Taiwan who spend all their time looking to cut costs as student numbers drop.

cocktail hour sounds inviting!

There was an article on this in the Economist recently.

If I were still young, ambitious and single this is the sort of company I’d be hitching a ride with. EFL in Taiwan is extinct.
