What makes Pingu’s English programs unique in the market?

Our qualified Pingu’s English teachers follow day-by-day lesson plans built on key milestones in our students’ social and academic development. Pingu’s English international kindergarten program is the only curriculum worldwide to have day-by-day lesson plans to ensure consistency of its method worldwide.

During their time with Pingu’s English, our students will develop well-rounded skills in reading, speaking, writing and understanding in English, alongside academic skills such as maths, and broader social skills such as team work, communication and confidence to prepare them for formal education.

Pingu’s English international curricula have strong learning outcomes throughout. Certainly we would expect that our students should reach a level of English proficiency which would enable them to sit the Cambridge Starters Exams, equivalent to an English proficiency level of A1 on the Common European Framework.
