At a ceremony in Jakarta yesterday, Pingu’s English Indonesia announced another Pingu’s English School is going to open in Sumatra Island, thanks to a franchising deal with PT. Riau Edukasi Cemerlang.
Rafinal Naldi Rasfuldi, the Director of PT. Riau Edukasi Cemerlang, is partnering with Pingu’s English because he believes that together they can provide quality English language learning for children in Pekanbaru, Riau. This will be the seventh Pingu’s English School to open in Indonesia; and will start delivering English language training to young children in Pekanbaru this December.
Now available in over 80 centers around the world, the Pingu’s English learning system has proved to be fun, effective and rewarding for Indonesian children. Parents are also seeing a marked improvement in their children’s confidence and English communication skills.
As the representative from PT. Impact Teaching Center, the Master Licensee of Pingu’s English for Indonesia, Jenny Lee was very positive that by using the same key ingredients as the other Pingu’s English Schools in Indonesia, the one in Pekanbaru will be another success.
Pingu’s English is an English language course based on the popular HIT Entertainment children’s character, Pingu™. Transforming the way that young children learn English, the unique methodology uses a wide variety of imaginative activities and multimedia resources to teach children of 3-8+ years the vital skill of communicating in English and is produced by the UK-based Linguaphone Group.
The Pingu brand is owned by HIT Entertainment, one of the world’s leading children’s entertainment producers and rights-owners and division of Fisher-Price.
