Disney English quits China after 12 years

Disney English is quitting the English education business in China after 12 years, it announced on Monday.

Disney English has 26 centers across the country, including 10 in Shanghai, and it has attracted more than 100,000 learners aged between 2 and 12.

They suspended operations in January due to the COVID-19 outbreak, offering online classes from March 19 as a temporary measure.
