The enormously popular animated television character Pingu is now in Kuwait, ready to teach pre-schoolers to speak English through Pingu’s English, a unique English language course for young children from the UK.

Pingu’s English is already transforming the way that young children learn English in over fifteen countries worldwide. The program uses a wide variety of imaginative activities and multimedia resources to teach children of 3-8+ years the vital skill of communicating in English.

When children and parents enter a Pingu’s English School, they will begin an exciting adventure with Pingu the penguin and his family and friends in the South Pole. Unlike many other English courses, Pingu’s English captures the child’s attention from the start with interesting situations and topics to bring their learning alive. The pace of every lesson is lively and engaging and there’s no need to have any experience in the English language either.

Designed for use within Pingu’s English Schools, kindergartens and also by parents and children at home, this innovative course is exclusive to the Linguaphone Group, a UK-based global language training provider. This unique learning system covers the four language skills of speaking, writing, reading and listening, helping the child to communicate in a natural and confident way from day one.

The first Pingu’s English centre in Kuwait is based in Kaifan, with four classrooms and a capacity for 15 children in each. All teachers are mother tongue English speakers and have excellent qualifications. As well as helping children learn the valuable skill of English, Pingu’s English Kuwait will also offer creche facilities for parents.

Boubyan LLC for Training Institutes has been appointed as the exclusive Pingu’s English Master Licensee for Kuwait. Amongst their exciting plans for the coming year, Pingu’s English will offer their program to existing nurseries and kindergartens, and provide opportunities for entrepreneurs wishing to open their own Pingu’s English Schools across Kuwait to get involved.

Pingu’s English Kuwait open days will take place between Saturday 9th March – Tuesday 12th March 2013. To find out more for open days and free demo classes or to book a free trial class, please phone 22394763, 51268177, email info@pingusenglish.com.kw or visit www.pingusenglish.com.kw
