Learning Experience with Pingu’s English Program

Few months ago if you asked me ‘Does your preschooler need any extra support than his preschool sessions?’ I would have said a big ‘NO’! Because I believe my kid needs to learn without much stress and much force. Therefore for me it’s enough for sending him for daily preschool!

But? Now I send him for Pingu’s English program once a week. Isn’t it an extra class or tuition or enrichment program for preschooler? Yes, it is. This is because our decisions are changed lately. From the beginning of this year, we started sending our kid to Pingu’s English program. So, here is our story and the experience.

Pingu’s English Review

How we found Pingu’s English?

Last year our kid attended Apple Tree playgroup and his changes were really amazing. He improved in many skills including arts & crafts and social skills. At the same time, though we didn’t expect from him he also learned to write during the playgroup year. That was something we never expected from the playgroup age kid. But he did as the playgroup was based on Pingu’s English Level 1.At the end of Playgroup year; he completed the Pingu’s English Level 1 including the activity books.

Though the teachers introduced the Pingu’s English level 2 for the next year as an extra class, we decided not to send the kid thinking preschool is enough for him. But our first preschool experience was not up to our satisfaction! That was the time I reminded the Pingu’s English program again.

I contacted Apple Tree and registered the kid for the Pingu’s English program. Here is our experience as we are happy with the outcome!

Not a beautiful photo of him,but this is how he attends the classes each week.He is really excited! 🙂

Our kid is very happy to attend the class each week and he loves talking with me the things he learned during the day. He improved his writing skills and at the same time he also learns phonics. Teacher gives him 1-2 pages homework each week and it is a good way to revise and to prepare him for the next session. As the program includes playful moments, my kid is happy to attend the classes saying he also wants to play with Pingu and the friends.

Other than the child’s interest in attending the Pingu’s English class, I am also happy with the teacher parent communication. After each session, the teacher explains the things he learned during the session including the homework to do. That time is always helpful to talk with the teacher about any matters we have regarding the kid’s performances.

Overall we are happy with the Pingu’s English. As our new preschool experience is good, I asked the child if he needs to stop the Pingu’s English. But, it was a Big No!! 🙂 He says he wants to attend the Pingu’s class, play with Pingu and learn from the teacher. It seems he likes his teacher so much!! 🙂

It is important that parents and teachers communicate well over the child's development. Good to know your child's school is open to such interactions. Knowing about Pingu's English program for the first time. I am sure he will benefit.

Pingu’s English program sounds awesome! It's always important for a child to enjoy learning and to be able to grow at their own pace. I'll look into this program for when my son's school age.

Sounds like a great program. While I agree preschool is enough, I also thinks kids can never learn too much! If we can provide them with extra I don't see why not take advantage! Sounds like you are a great mom!

I might have to check out Pingu for my toddler. He is working on his speech skills, and this sounds great for some extra practice.

It is a gorgeous picture of him. Bless your little man; he is adorable! I wish I had a fun program like Pingu when I first started learning English 20 years ago. Those classes were so terribly dull.

It looks like a lot of fun, and if learning is fun and interesting then it will never overload the child, just stimulate them. Who doesn't love PIngu after all.

It's great how play groups can really help improve skills in children... much quicker than playing by themselves.
