Learning with Pingu’s English during the festive season!

Latest News

The festive season can be a busy time of year for teachers, parents and especially children. And between all the fun, it’s definitely possible to still continue a child’s learning with Pingu’s English. Teachers of Pingu’s English may like to undertake some of these fun festive activities in school. And parents of Pingu’s English students might also like to try some of these at home with their children too! 

🎄    Write cards together for your friends and family. Why not look on a map to show them where they are being posted to, so that they gain a better understanding of the world? If they can write their name great, or if not the first letter of their name or even a mark would be good too.

🎄    When you receive cards yourselves, you could count how many arrive with your child. Or why not sort them by shape and talk about the images on each card? Your children will be so excited to receive these cards, so any learning opportunity you can use around them is great!

🎄    Why not help them write a letter to Father Christmas – even if they are still developing their writing skills, maybe they can draw a picture or squiggle? You could use different colour pens and paper or try cutting out and sticking any festive images you find in newspapers or magazines! 🎅

🎄    Pick your favourite festive recipe and have some fun baking. For example, you could bake some Christmas tree shaped cookies and experiment with different shapes and sizes, whilst working together with your child to weigh each ingredient following the recipe’s measurements! 🥧

🎄    Using an advent calendar, count down the days until Christmas – why not make your own advent calendar together! Or an over-sized one and put it up in class?




🎄    There are lots of Christmas songs you can enjoy singing together, including the ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ song, a joyous tune which lists a number of festive items whilst also exercising your child’s knowledge of counting! 🎹

🎄    You can also do Christmas crafts which can help your children with their fine motor skills. Try making this penguin – cut out a black circle, then cut out a white circle to go on the top of the black circle for the penguin’s tummy. Next cut out two feet, two arms and two eyes and glue the hands and feet to the back of the card. Now glue the two eyes onto the white area about one third of the way down. Now cut out a red, triangular beak and stick it in the middle. Now you have your penguin. Be sure to display children’s work in a visible area as this will develop their self-confidence and belief. 🐧


🎄    Make salt dough Christmas decorations to hang on the tree in your school, or around the house. To do this you will need four cups of white flour, one cup of salt and one and a half cups of water. Mix it together and give each child one ball to mould into any shape they want. It is a good idea to have cutters on hand for them to use or they can make their own design.

Why not use some environmentally friendly glitter to add to make it sparkly? Once they have finished make sure to put a hole in the top with a pencil as this is where the string will go once it’s cooked. When everyone has finished one or two decorations put them in the oven. Once cooled the children can paint or decorate further, thread with ribbon and hang at home!

🎄    Depending on the level of English of your children, a great Christmas game is to ask children to write down as many words as they can related to Christmas. This could be one for each letter of the alphabet or a verbal game depending on the level of your students. For example, going around the room/class and asking each child to provide a Christmas item for a, b, c etc

Remember learning with Pingu’s English is always fun, as well as effective too. We hope you have a wonderful time undertaking some of these activities over the festive season and continuing your child or student’s learning with Pingu’s English. Wishing all students, parents and staff at Pingu’s English worldwide, the very best Christmas and Happy New Year!

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
