Master licensees have been confirmed for Linguaphone Group's English language training programmes across the Gulf.
The Al Rawas Group, one of the largest corporations in Oman, has secured the exclusive rights to develop the Linguaphone Group's Direct English language programme for adults across the Oman.
Meanwhile, property management company Bloom will act as the official Pingu's English master licensee for the United Arab Emirates. The firm will deliver Pingu'a English through partnerships with businesses across the Emirates and open its first school in Abu Dhabi this autumn.
Finally, children in Kuwait will soon be able to learn English with Pingu, due to a new partnership with the prominent Alfadalah Almuaili Almaraghi Group.
"Building on our existing presence across the Gulf is a key part of the Linguaphone Group's export expansion strategy for the Middle East, and we are delighted to welcome these new partners," said Derek Price, CEO of the Linguaphone Group.
