Scientifically Proven English Language Teaching

Learning a second language from an early age can:

  • Enhance literacy development in a child’s native language.
  • Positively alter the brain’s structure, increasing the amount of information-processing nerve cells in the language processing lobe.
  • Helps children absorb an English accent and build up vocabulary in more than one language simultaneously.

International Curriculum

The unique Pingu’s English Program has been developed by international educational experts to help pre-school children gain language skills from the earliest possible stage, and use English in the real world with confidence.

The curriculum includes four distinct levels. Across all levels, five key learning skills have been identified and are practiced at the same time to boost the learning process and help children to feel at home with the English language: reading, writing, speaking, listening and understanding.

At Pingu’s English, we use a spiral syllabus method to introduce language concepts from an early age. As your child’s ability level increases, we reintroduce the topic again at a higher level to ensure that the knowledge sticks.

Each unit of the Pre-school English program is based on a Pingu episode, nurturing your child’s imagination and helping them learn in a way that ensures the knowledge will last a lifetime.

The unique Pingu’s English syllabus has been developed by educational experts to help pre-school children gain language skills from the earliest possible stage, and use English in the real world with confidence.

We do this by combining fun, playful education techniques with enough structure and routine to manage their knowledge-base and prepare them for full-time education.

We provide children with activities, multimedia and sensory experiences that enhance the learning process, as well as a relaxed, open environment in which to explore their new talent.

Class sizes are kept small to make sure each child gets the attention that they need. This, in tandem with our commitment to teaching to each child’s individual strengths, makes Pingu’s English the right choice for kids with any existing level of English.

Testimonials

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.

 Sean Blakeley, BCCK CEO

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.
