Pingu's English launches in Malaysia

Awan Sensory Marketing Sdn. Bhd and the Linguaphone Group, the world’s leading provider of language training solutions will today launch a pre-school English language course, Pingu’s English, at the Hotel Grand Millennium in Kuala Lumpur.

Designed for use within Pingu’s English approved schools and also by parents and children at home, this innovative course will be available initially in Bangsar – Kuala Lumpur, Putera Heights – Selangor and Kulai – Johor this September, with 10 more schools opening across Malaysia in early 2009.

Pingu’s English is a 3 level course and will teach English to young children of 3-7+ years. Pingu’s English also provides valuable lessons in socialization, numeracy and computer skills. The course is based on the hugely popular television character, Pingu™, the mischievous but loveable penguin, and centres on his true-to-life everyday adventures in the South Pole.

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

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


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.
