What is Pingu’s English?

At Pingu’s English, we provide children with the chance to get ahead in life by helping them learn the international language of communication and business from the earliest possible stage. 

This sub-division of the leading language teaching provider Linguaphone was founded in 2007. We’ve developed an innovative and creative teaching method that uses a charming TV character and its friends to keep kids engaged throughout the whole learning process.

We teach vital English language skills to children aged 3 – 8+, including:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Speaking
  • Listening

Our method gives parents an opportunity to help their child learn a language that will open up doors in their future lives. It introduces children to full-time education in supportive and engaging way, keeping them one step ahead when it comes to starting school. Pingu’s English lets you combine safe and entertaining childcare with an educational program that will help your kids develop the skills and confidence to use English in their everyday lives.   

Pingu’s English is consistently growing; opening up schools in markets across the world, and helping a new generation of kids to learn this hugely important life skill. We have a network of trusted international franchise partners, who work hard to achieve a safe and happy working environment for children.

How does the Pingu’s English method work?

Based on the Antarctic adventures of TVs lovable little PinguTM and his family, the Pingu’s English method engages kids in a fun and active learning environment.

Kids will be excited to find out what the next chapter holds for Pingu, keeping them engaged in new topics and situations throughout every stage of the learning process. Whether your child has English language experience or not, a Pingu’s English course will give them everything they need to flourish and grow.

Confident and accurate English language usage from an early stage 

Through a combination of high teacher/pupil ratios, strengths-based teaching methods and our innovative spiral teaching technique, we help kids gain knowledge and confidence by introducing them to complex topics at the earliest possible stage, and giving them the scope to explore their new-found knowledge.

Educational and creative skills

The Pingu’s English course teaches so much more than just the English language. We prepare children for full-time education by introducing them to the school routine, and useful skills including numeracy, IT, reasoning and behavioral technique.

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

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.

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
