About

Principles of Learning

 

Proven Method With Over 115 Years of Language Training Heritage

Our strong education principles are what have helped us develop a method that is recognized and respected around the world. 

Engaged learning

At Pingu’s English, we use proven play-based teaching techniques to help children stay engaged with the learning process.

Our course is based on the Antarctic adventures of lovable little PinguTM. This provides a colorful and stimulating learning environment that’s fun to learn in. Pingu’s world will inspire your child’s imagination, and make sure the skills that they acquire are skills they have for life.

Unique teaching

We then use spiral learning and parental interaction to revisit and reinforce the knowledge that our children have acquired, giving them the skills and confidence they need to put what they’ve learned into action.

We focus on teaching kids English in a way that enables them to develop as people, rather than just using a simple listen and repeat method. We combine listening, speaking, writing and reading skills to give children a comprehensive knowledge base.

Educational Preparation

Not only do Pingu’s English students receive a valuable new life skill, they’re also introduced to full-time education in a balanced and welcoming way.

We gently introduce children to the idea of learning within a classroom environment, helping to give them the patience and discipline they’ll need in full-time education.

Our syllabus includes everything from written work, numeracy and IT to social engagement, craft skills, songs and games. This gives your child a rounded, positive first experience of education that will help them adapt to school in no time. 

Global Appeal

Pingu’s English is truly a global enterprise. Since we were established in 2008, we’ve opened new learning centers in countries across Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.

We know that each country has a different teaching method, and that every child learns in an individual way. That’s why our franchised education model is flexible enough to be applied to any country, culture or religious group. Our reach already includes centers in such different markets as Italy and Thailand, proving how universally adaptable our method can be.

Find out how Pingu’s English can help your child learn a vital skill that will give them a head-start in life.

    Our Experience with Pingu’s English has been profitable and positive from the first year. We relied on their professionalism and heritage, their staff is always prompt to assist with the latest trends and ideas on the market. We were looking for a brand who can guarantee us quality and a solid method but at the same time would leave us the freedom and flexibility in order to succeed in our challenging and competitive market like the Italian one. We built Pingu’s English project in Italy by mixing their huge international experience in the English training with our knowledge of the Italian market. All this enabled us to do the right decision for our winning investment. Today we have over 40 Pingu’s English centres and thousands of happy children learning English

    Daniele Arboit

    Master Franchisee in Italy

    We at the British Chamber of Commerce worked with Linguaphone Group to find them a new in-market partner for the Korean market. Throughout the engagement we had with Linguaphone Group, we found them to be passionate about education, supremely professional in their approach to business and both responsive and personable in their interactions with ourselves and Korean partners. Korean investors were attracted to the best-in-class program which Linguaphone Group offers, the strong reputation of the company and the heritage with which it is associated. These are qualities that resonate globally.

    Pingu’s English School is not just a school; it is as a second home for my kid. I like it when I see my kid growing and learning in a friendly and safe atmosphere. Most of all, I can see a lot of improvement in his English listening and speaking skills

    Piyatida Tudteam

    Student's Mother

    We love Pingu’s English School because the school gives my son the opportunity to learn and develop different skills, especially English skills. He is excited every time to go to school and is always happy when he comes home.

    Sapavoot Preedawipart

    Student's Mother

    Regarding the teaching method they use a figurative storytelling way of starting the lesson,  trying hard to involve the child and make the them curious about the situation. Tom is very happy to go to Pingu’s English because he perceives the School as a playful moment and not just as a learning moment while at the same time he is learning a new language

    Veronica

    Students Mother

    Now she is studying at Pingu’s English School, my daughter only wants to talk to me in English and she is always singing the songs.

    Cristiane Doimo

    Students mother

    I knew about Pingu’s English School through a friend. After research about the school, I decided to enroll my daughter and it was one of the best things I could do to her. She loves studying at Pingu’s English and she cannot wait to the day of the class. I also love Pingu's English School, because there she learns by playing and I can see her progress day by day.
