Educational Academic Publishing

Build a functional mastery of the English language in one year or less.
Direct Instruction Spoken English (DISE) is the answer to English language acquisition. The program addresses the needs of English language learners by building their knowledge of English through carefully designed, systematic oral instruction. Designed for students ten years or older who have an understanding of basic concepts in their first language, DISE is a systematic, mastery-based program that introduces and practices the essentials of spoken English:

  • Semantics—word and language meaning
  • Syntax—grammar and word order
  • Pragmatics—the contexts in which different types of language are appropriate (such as informal vs. formal language).

All instruction is delivered in English, fully scripted in a teacher presentation book. All student material is in the form of displays that are projected or viewed on a tablet or computer screen.
Learn more about DISE at or email them at [email protected].
