    Pingu's English International Curriculum

    Pingu’s English and Kingston University London have identified six core curricula ‘strands’ which form the basis of the curriculum and through which children will learn, all in a fully English speaking environment.  These curriculum skills are:

    • Communication, Language, Literacy, Reading, Writing and Spelling

    • Personal, Social, Emotional, Health and Well Being, and Cultural Diversity
    • Numeracy, Shape, Space, and Measurement

    As a key goal of the program is to develop early bilingualism, our tried, tested and trusted International Kindergarten curriculum is designed to be primarily delivered through the medium of the English language,

    However, we appreciate that children in this age-group will still be developing communication skills in their mother-tongue, so it is natural and expected that some non-English support will be provided by our qualified kindergarten staff.

    There is also flexibility within our International Kindergarten program  to add in any market-specific requirements required, such as local language instruction or religious education for instance, that may be required by the Ministry of Education in a given market.


    Student Material

    Alongside comprehensive and engaging guidance for teachers to deliver inspiring lessons, our International Kindergarten curriculum offers premium-quality learning resources for every child to use in class and at home.

    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.

    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
