Pingu's English children's English franchise from the Linguaphone Group to arrive in Pakistan

Children across Pakistan will soon have the opportunity to develop their English language skills with Pingu, thanks to a new, exclusive franchise deal announced today by the Linguaphone Group and Eureka Global Education.

The Linguaphone Group, a global language training provider based in the UK, have granted Eureka Global Education the exclusive license to represent them across Pakistan with their popular, pre-school English language training brand, Pingu’s English.

Pingu’s English is a three-level language course for 3-8 year olds based on the popular HIT Entertainment children’s character, Pingu™, and designed for use within Pingu’s English Schools, kindergartens and also by parents and children at home. Transforming the way that young children learn English, Pingu’s English is developed by leading experts in the fields of child education and language acquisition. Using a wide variety of imaginative activities and multimedia resources Pingu’s English seeks to reshape the way that children learn English, and already operates successfully through a network of Master Franchisees in over 20 countries worldwide.

Eureka Global Education (formerly known as KM Educational Services) has been developing first-class education services in Pakistan since 2004. They already offer different qualifications for schools and institutes in English language, information technology, multimedia, art, textile design, tutoring and other fields of learning – all under the umbrella of Eureka Global Education.

Mr Kashif Memon, Pingu’s English Master Licensee for Pakistan said:

“The vision of Eureka Global Education for Pingu’s English is forward-thinking and ambitious. We plan to establish a chain of dynamic Pingu’s English educational institutions across Pakistan, all with the latest teaching methodologies and learning facilities for children of 3-8 years old.  Our objective is to develop the confidence and skill in English of every student that we teach,  whilst at the same time preparing them for success in a highly challenging and competitive world.”

“Building on our already impressive research and development activities, and the synergies created by our different brands under Eureka Global Education – Pingu’s English will aim to be a world-class leader in pre-school English language training in Pakistan in the years ahead. We are delighted to be working with the renowned Pingu’s English and Linguaphone Group to bring their unique pre-school franchise to the Pakistani market.”

Commenting on the partnership, Derek Price, Chief Executive Officer of the Linguaphone Group said:

“The Linguaphone Group is delighted to be working with Eureka Global Education to bring Pingu’s English to young children across Pakistan.  As a company, Eureka are already starting to build a good presence in pre-school education here. We look forward to building on their experience in the Pakistani market, to help parents and investors alike see the wide range of academic benefits that are already benefiting thousands of young children worldwide.

“This partnership has been made possible by an introduction made the British Embassy in Pakistan, and we would like to also take this opportunity to thank all those involved at the UKTI there for their support.”

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.

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.

Cristiane Doimo

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
