Latest News

On the 5th of May 2016, a fifth branch of the famous Pingu’s English language training franchise opened at a kindergarten in Thailand.

In the hearth of Phuket in southern Thailand, Mr. Derek Price, CEO of Linguaphone Group and Dr. Nipat Ungpakornkaew, the Master Licensee of Pingu’s English Thailand, were invited by head teacher Miss Noppakate Adjanaromwat to preside over the opening ceremony at this junior school-kindergarten.

Miss Adjanaromwat has been successfully teaching English and Mathematics to international students here for almost five years. Her school includes a reception, parent area, playground and four classrooms that can serve over 300 students per year.

At the ceremony Mr. Ungpakornkaew congratulated Miss Noppakate for opening this latest Pingu’s English School “where demand for English language schooling is high”. He went on to explain how Phuket has been chosen for the next phase of English language development. Corporate and retail markets in this region are expected to respond well to Pingu’s English training programme as tourism is so important and the region is ready to meet increased demand.

In his conclusion Dr. Ungpakornkaew said: “We are confident that the reputation of Pingu’s English and its growth in the market will continue in the year ahead”. In support of this statement, he revealed that the next school branch is already planned to open in Northeast Thailand in July 2016.

Thai children now have the opportunity to enrol in a choice of five Pingu’s English language learning centres across the country, with more centers projected to follow:

  1. Pingu’s English School, Central World, Bangkok
  2. Pingu’s English School, The Nine Center, Bangkok
  3. Pingu’s English School, Ayutthaya
  4. Pingu’s English School, Udonthani
  5. Pingu’s English School, Phuket

While families continue to be the core basis for each child’s care and development in Thailand, public and private schools are increasingly mandated to provide reliable child development services.

The law states that caregivers responsible for young people in public and private institutes and kindergarten must be professional and have the appropriate knowledge, attitude and skills to provide the best care for children with the close cooperation of parents. It is for these reasons why Pingu’s English has been recognized by the Ministry of Education for providing some of the best English language schooling with a class-leading curriculum for Thai children.

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
