ABOUT CARLOS ESTELLÉS - LOLA PIRINDOLA

But also, … Multicultural, Configurable and Multilanguage. Then, … let’s get to the point! What´s the pain in education? What´s the real pain in education? Experts are talking about early stimulation but, children are still receiving the same materials than twenty years ago. Children pick up knowledge like sponges and they want more and more but they are still given repetitive exercises with no change. Northern European countries or countries like Japan have multicultural learning systems, but most of the countries are still focused on just the things around them. To summarize, if every child is different and every child needs a different motivation, why do they have the same educational material? Ok. In Lola Pirindola we have done just one thing, … we have listened. We are experts in it! … in listening! We have over five years of experience in the educational sector and we have sold over twenty eight thousand products We can say that our strength is customer knowledge. But, who are our customers?
