Pingu's English Italy Franchise Announces Further Expansion

Latest News

Pingu’s English Italy Franchise today announced further expansion of their successful pre-school English learning franchise, bringing their current network to thirty Pingu’s English Schools across the country.

Pingu’s English is a three-level language course for 3-8 year olds from the UK-based Linguaphone Group, already transforming the way that children learn English in over twenty countries worldwide. Pingu’s English is centered around the adventures of Pingu and his friends and family in the South Pole, and uses a wide variety of imaginative activities and multimedia resources to teach children to read, write, listen and speak confidently in the English language.

In the last few months, the Pingu’s English Italy franchise has successful launched Pingu’s English in Bologna, Milan and Busto Arsizio in northern Italy. Two further Pingu’s English Schools are scheduled to open in Saronno and Pavia later this month.

While the majority of Pingu’s English Schools have so far been in the north and centre of Italy, Pingu’s English has also recently arrived in the southern Italian cities of Messina, Crotone and Palmi.

Commenting on this announcement, Mr. Daniele Arboit, Pingu’s English Master Franchisee for Italy said:

“We are delighted at the interest in Pingu’s English so far from the Italian business community. One of the reasons for Pingu’s English success is, I believe that the course combines the academic rigour that Italian parents rightly demand for their children, with all the fun and excitement that Pingu and his friends offers to keep children interested and learning”

“I’m also confident that another factor in our success has been the appointment of strong Unit Franchisees with first-class sales and marketing skills, and a commitment to first-class customer service. In the year ahead, we look forward to bringing Pingu’s English to more and more children across Italy. We will do this by continuing to work closely with our existing Pingu’s English franchise network to build on their success so far. We also plan to appoint new Unit Franchisees in key new locations across Italy, as part of our expansion strategy to open at least ten more new Pingu’s English Schools in the coming year.”

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.

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.

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


Pingu's English Student's Mother /Italy
