Pingu’s English children’s English language program heads to Gading Serpong

Young children in Gading Serpong will soon be able to experience a new and entertaining way to learn English when a new Pingu’s English School opens its doors this summer.

On April 8th, 2011, PT. Impact Teaching Centre – Pingu’s English Master Franchisee for Indonesia – has signed a franchise agreement with PT. Nusa Capital Indonesia to establish a Pingu’s English School in the Gading Serpong area Tangerang.

Pingu’s English Gading Serpong will be the third Pingu’s English in Indonesia, with a grand opening taking place this September. It follows other successful launches of Pingu’s English Schools in the Mall of Indonesia and Bintaro.

Pingu’s English is a fun and imaginative way for young children to learn English and gain a better start in life and is based on the popular children’s character, Pingu™. Pingu’s English is a three-level course aimed at 3 – 7+ years and developed by leading experts in the fields of child education and language acquisition. The unique syllabus uses a wide variety of imaginative activities and multimedia resources. 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.

The Pingu brand is owned by HIT Entertainment, one of the world’s leading independent children’s entertainment producers and rights-owners.
