Chairman and CEO of MyGym China, Mr. James LIU, said, “Language is the fundamental skill for people to communicate with each other and English is the global common language nowadays. By using this iconic Pingu’s English branding across all MyGym centers and resources, the company’s services have become a unique proposition in the market.”

The award-winning Pingu’s English syllabus has been developed by educational experts to help pre-school children gain language skills from the earliest possible stage, and use English in the real world with confidence.

CEO of Linguaphone Group, Mr Derek Price, said, We are pleased to bring our 115 years of experience in English teaching to China and look forward to achieving similar success with Direct English, our brand of franchise English schools for adults.

Pingu’s English uses proven play-based teaching techniques to help children stay engaged with the learning process. It makes the learning experience colourful, fun and tailored to children’s strengths.

The course is based on the adorable adventures of Pingu™ in the Antarctic. This engaging setting provides a stimulating environment that’s fun for children to learn in. Research shows that when children are having fun, they learn more quickly and easily. Pingu’s world captures the imagination and inspires children to acquire vital skills for life.

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

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.

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

Piyatida Tudteam

Student's Mother

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.

Sapavoot Preedawipart

Student's Mother

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

Veronica

Students Mother

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

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.
