Latest News

At the prestigious launch of Pingu’s English in Vilnius yesterday, Mr David Hunt, British Ambassador to Lithuania, welcomed the UK-franchise from the Linguaphone Group to the country, and congratulated Prima Educatio Ltd on their appointment as the exclusive Master Franchise for Pingu’s English across Lithuania.

Pingu’s English Lithuania opened their doors to their flagship Pingu’s English School in a well-positioned city-center location of Vilnius. Children and parents alike can now register for free demo Pingu’s English classes, and find out more about children’s birthday parties on offer, as well as seasonal one-week day camp services and creative activities for parents and kids that will be available from the school.

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

As well as developing a strong presence in Vilnius, Pingu’s English Lithuania will open a Pingu’s English School in Kaunas later this year. They will also work with investors and entrepreneurs to open their own Pingu’s English School in other parts of Lithuania.

Speaking at the launch, Mr David Hunt, British Ambassador to Lithuania said: “I am delighted to welcome Pingu’s English to the Lithuanian market. British companies are market leaders in the education sector, and I look forward to seeing Pingu’s English continuing this performance in Lithuania”.

Mr Matt Brown, New Business Manager with the Linguaphone Group added “We are delighted to see the launch of Pingu’s English Lithuania in Vilnius today. We very much look forward to working with our partner here to bring our renowned pre-school English language program to children across Lithuania.”

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.

Now she is studying at Pingu’s English School, my daughter only wants to talk to me in English and she is always singing the songs.

Cristiane Doimo

Pingu's English Student's mother /Brazil

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
