It's Penguin Awareness Day!

Latest News

How much do you know about Penguins? Here some facts:

  • Penguins can spend up to 75% of their lives in the water.
  • Their prey can be found within 60 feet of the surface, so penguins have no need to swim in deep water
  • Penguins closer to the equator eat more fish and penguins closer to Antarctica eat more squid and krill
  • The species with the lowest population is the endangered Galapagos penguin with between 6,000-15,000 individuals. Macaroni penguins are 11,654,000 pairs.
  • Mating Season is during spring or summer
  • Incubation Varies from 1 month-66 days depending on the species
  • The average life expectancy of penguins is probably 15 to 20 years but some individuals live longer
  • Penguins can be found on every continent in the Southern Hemisphere from the tropical Galapagos Islands
  • Little penguins rely on burrows and a nocturnal lifestyle to avoid predators such as swamp harriers, peregrines, gulls, snakes, rats, and lizards
  • Mass exploitation occurred when early explorers and fishermen turned to penguin colonies as sources of fresh meat and eggs. Sometimes more than 300,000 eggs were taken in annual harvests from one African island. Penguins were easy prey because of their inability to fly and their seeming lack of fear of humans
  • Although egg-collecting was banned in 1969, illegal harvesting continues today

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

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

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.
