      What makes our curriculum unique?

      Our new, three-year, full-time Pingu’s English kindergarten curriculum is based on the globally recognised Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) principles from the UK.

      The EYFS curriculum is the government-created curriculum for all early years’ settings and schools in the United Kingdom.

      University of Kingston London’s expertise and experience with the EYFS has shaped and influenced the Pingu’s English international kindergarten curriculum.

      However, in order to create a truly international model, Pingu’s English and Kingston University London has weaved in methodologies from the strongest elements of other international curricula too, including Montessori, Reggio Emilia, Swedish Forest Schools, and Singapore’s Nurturing Early Learners.

      As well as developing proficiency in the English language, Pingu’s English’s robust curriculum develops  a student’s skills in maths, arts, health, science and culture that come alive through games, focused-learning and engaging activities.

      Children explore the world of animals, numbers, colors and shapes, food, family and friends, customs, belongings through play, drawings, crafts, as well as practising important skills for their future such as English and numeracy with qualified teachers.

        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.

        Pingu's English Master Licensee Thailand

        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


        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.

        Pingu's English Student's Mother/ Thailand

        Pingu’s English School is not just a school; it is as a second home for my kid. I like it when I see my kid growing and learning in a friendly and safe atmosphere. Most of all, I can see a lot of improvement in his English listening and speaking skills
