Storytime with Pingu’s English - resources for parents





Reading is fun with Pingu’s English.   Here at Storytime with Pingu’s English we will post regular stories here, as well as on our Facebook page for you and child’s enjoyment.  If you can, try and read a book every day with your child.    Try and encourage them to repeat the story you have just read from memory to check their understanding.

The Tiger who came to tea by Judith Kerr

This Storytime with Pingu’s English is the wonderful The Tiger who came to tea by Judith Kerr and read by Rebecca Gilligan, Head of Curriculum and Content from Pingu’s English.  We hope you enjoy it!

Once you have finished reading it,  there’s a few activities below you can try at home:-

  • You can make a tiger mask here, or use face paints to make your own tiger at home.
  • You could make your own junk modelling tiger from things you have at home.
  • Then why not have your child set up your own tea party with your new home-made tiger? Your child could lay out the table. They could make the party invites.
  • You could also get your child to draw a poster with all the things they remember from the story. And for older children label them with the words Sophie, water, milk and buns.
  • Why not get your child to draw a story map of what happened with Sophie and the visit from the tiger? An example of a story map can be seen below in the third picture. It is just a visual way to check their understanding of the story.  Draw a wiggly line with a beginning, a middle and an end. Ask them to draw the key things that happened in the story.  For older children they can then label the key items they have drawn.
  • Why not create a shopping list which shows all the things that Sophie’s family will have to buy to replace the things that were eaten for tea?
  • There are also extra activities created by the publishers of The Tiger who Came to Tea for you to download here

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

We love Pingu’s English School because the school gives my son the opportunity to learn and develop different skills, especially English skills. He is excited every time to go to school and is always happy when he comes home.
