Pingu’s English to launch new franchise program across Germany at Start Messe Dortmund

Pingu’s English, the global children’s English language training program from the UK-based Linguaphone Group will be attending the Start Messe franchise exhibition in Dortmund this November to look for exclusive partners to launch their program in all sixteen Federal States of Germany.

Pingu’s English is a global children’s English language training program based on the popular HIT Entertainment children’s character Pingu™. Pingu’s English, and their network of franchisees, are already transforming the way that young children learn English in over 20 countries worldwide and capitalising on a global market worth at least $15 billion.

Developing English language skills is crucial to giving a child a good headstart in life. The unique syllabus of Pingu’s English combines imaginative activities with multimedia resources for 3-8+ year olds and is exclusive to the Linguaphone Group, a global language training provider with 109 years of experience in the language training market.

Pingu’s English is already helping children successfully learn English in Italy, Portugal, Poland, Cyprus and Czech Republic, as well as countries across the Middle East and Asia. Now, Pingu’s English is looking to appoint strong German business partners, keen to reap the commercial benefits of the program, in all states from Bremen to Bavaria.

Partners do not need to have experience in the education market, it is more important to have the expertise, resources and focus to work together with us to develop Pingu’s English in Germany. All Pingu’s English partners will have exclusivity across their state and receive comprehensive marketing and business support to develop their business.

The Master Franchise opportunity for exclusive rights to develop Pingu’s English across the whole of Germany is also available.

Pingu’s English will be visiting Start Messe Dortmund in November to meet with potential investors and partners. For more information or to book an appointment visit www.pingusenglish.de or email opportunities@pingusenglish.com
