Ms Jenny Lee, COO of Pingu’s English Indonesia commented:-
“We are delighted to launch the advanced level Pingu’s English Jumpers course in Indonesia today.

“We are delighted to welcome Pingu’s English Indonesia to our center network. Our Young Learners Tests are designed to give children a positive experience which encourages them in their studies. We set very strict standards of quality and integrity for all of our centers and I would like to congratulate Pingu’s English on meeting these standards.’
