Latest News

This week, two new Pingu’s English Flagship centers launched in Bangkok to meet the increased demand for excellent preschool English courses for Thai children.

Thailand has now reached a total of 8 Unit Licensees and 17 School Licence Programmes under Pingu’s English brand. This is thanks to the enthusiastic and talented entrepreneur Dr. Nipat Ungpakornkaew, Master Licensee for Thailand, who is bringing the premium preschool English brand to his country.

The two centers are both in Bangkok, with one owned by Plearn Kids Co. Ltd. and the other by T.N.Y. Learning Center Co. Ltd.  They are already active with parents keen to enrol their children.




When asked why they decided to enter the education business with Pingu’s English brand, Mr.Nuthapop Maneechai, General Manager and Co-Founder at Plearn Kids Co., replied:

“The biggest challenge of teaching young children is how to create a fun environment while they learn the lessons with efficient results.

So, we think about the methods that encourage children to have fun, learn a lot of new words and develop their English skills. We found that Pingu’s English uses a unique cartoon character, entertaining activities, and good learning materials. As a result, children are very much interested and love it.”

Mrs. Kanjana Saengthong, President of T.N.Y. Learning Center Co. Ltd., also added:

“We realised that education is one of the most important structures for Thailand development. Nowadays, our country’s education quality is low. That’s was our initial reason for establishing T.N.Y. Learning Center Co. Ltd. in 2017. This company is the value-added business for our current properties business. Our goal is to create the best quality education center with a variety of skills development for the kids. We aim to enlist famous international franchises and run them in our center.

First, we started the business in our core area, which is the head office of our group. After this, we have gained experience in the education business, and we will continuously expand this concept to other areas.”

“As our aim that is to cooperate with the best international education franchises, we found that Pingu’s English is our first choice, because Pingu is a well-known character that is well matched with the target group (learners from 3 to 10 years old). After we received more information, we were impressed in their unique way that they teach, which fun and not boring. Moreover, our kids love Pingu! We have confidence that Pingu’s English is the most suitable English education partner for our sustainable business.”

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.

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
