Latest News

Phnom Penh, 10th September 2018– Pingu’s English, the international leaders in teaching English as a Foreign Language for kids, launched its first educational centre in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, in September. The state-of-the-art Cambodian centre incorporates the English for kids program and the Kindergarten program, which are both designed to deliver solid and proven curricula through a learn-by-play approach that helps kids to stand out from the crowd in an ever-more competitive world.

This key event was attended by Ms. Tina Redshaw, HM British Ambassador to the Kindgdom of Cambodia, Ms Nipoan Chheng, Executive Director of the British Chamber of Commerce of Cambodia, and Derek Price, CEO from Linguaphone Group’s Headquarters in the UK, the parent company of Pingu’s English.

“English is now an essential skill for every career and kids can now master it from a young age in a fun way with an international brand that provides English teaching and kindergartens to kids all over the world,” said Ms. Sodanin Sieng, Pingu’s English Master Licensee Cambodia. “Phnom Penh is the ideal location to launch the first Pingu’s English International School as Cambodian parents here are looking for an international school that will recognise their children’s limitless potential, help to deliver a bright future, and promote important family values, friendship and a healthy lifestyle.


“With only 10 students per class, the qualified teachers at Pingu’s English will use Pingu’s English proven methodologies to build the kids’ confidence. We are very proud to now have Pingu’s English brand here in Cambodia.”

The launch of the flagship international centre in Cambodia is a significant step in the company’s planned expansion into Asia and will build on the success of the Pingu’s English kindergarten program, launched in November 2017.

“We want to bring our well-established, cutting-edge methodology to children throughout Asia by constantly delivering quality and focus to their engaging and fun learning journey,” said Derek Price, CEO at Pingu’s English. “We are proud that our curricula teach the kids life skills, through our proven methodology and the lovely Pingu character, as well as how to master challenges with a positive approach, citizenship, environment-friendly values, and last but not least, a sense of giving and an understanding of diversity. In addition to our work in Cambodia, we maintain a strong presence across Asia including China, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. Many ambitious entrepreneurs worldwide are increasingly choosing Pingu’s English as a franchise partner and we are keen for this to continue, as I believe we are the world’s best international kindergarten and English provider for early years learning.”

The international kindergarten features a unique curriculum that was officially written with Kingston University London, which is not only a leader in Early Years Education, but also a TOP 200 University in the world, as listed by the Times Higher Education. Pingu’s English Kindergarten teaches Literacy, Music, Art, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and other life skills in a fully English-speaking environment which helps the kids to master all of the subjects that are required both at school and to achieve their future goals.

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
