Pingu’s English Vietnam will give more children the opportunity to enjoy learning English with Pingu, and much more besides, with the launch of the latest Pingu’s English pre-school to open in Vietnam, this time in Hai Phong, a major port city in north-eastern Vietnam.

Dragons and dancers were on hand to celebrate the colourful launch, which was led by Ms Tran Thi Bich Hue, the new Pingu’s English Unit Licensee for Hai Phong.

With five classrooms, they will teach Pingu’s English TOTs program from 18 months, and the brand’s four-level enrichment program for 3-8 years old. Pingu’s English Vietnam also plans to offer the Pingu’s English kindergarten program to Vietnamese parents in the coming year, as well as opening other Pingu’s English schools nationwide.

Commenting on the launch, Ms Tran

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.

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.

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
