PinguTM has been seen by over 1 billion people since he arrived on our screens since 1986. This long-term popularity means that Pingu isn’t just loved by kids, but by parents too.

Pingu is a lovable little penguin who lives in an igloo with his family at the South Pole. He’s always exploring new places and things with his friends, but looks to his family for the care and support that every child needs.

Pingu is the perfect teacher and role model.

Pingu’s English has been so successful because kids can learn with Pingu, rather than just from him.

What is Pingu’s English?

What is the secret ingredient that makes Pingu’s English effective for kids? The answer is simple. Let them have fun while they learn.

This approach makes learning feel more like playtime, keeping both kids and teachers engaged in a colorful, energetic environment. We understand that children learn in different ways, but will find what makes them curious and teach to their strengths.

Your children will learn how to use English in situations that they might come across in real life while learning important skills they need at school such as Math, Literacy, Writing, Role Play, Art, STEM and most of all, Social and Emotional skills. Rather than just learning individual words, they will gain the skills and confidence that they need to communicate confidently with whole passages of speech and writing.

To make sure children get the most possible out of our course, we provide a broad selection of resources to assist with learning at home. From homework sheets and educational videos to learning games, songs and activities, we have developed a unique set of tips for parents that will enable you to assist with the learning process regardless of your own English ability.

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.

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
