Bonjour! Hello...

My name is Annabelle and I run languages classes for 0-11 year olds, across Banbury area.

I am Mum to three children, Liam, Elio and Orianne. They are a testament to how different each child pick up a second language, it's true they are sponges, but it is also true they will all do it in their own way.

I'm originaly from Saumur and moved to Banbury in 2003 to study and just felt in love with the language and the culture. I have always loved travelling and meeting new people. The wide range of languages just fascinates me, I am passionate about sharing my love not only of the language but of the culture too!

Straight after having my first child, I knew that I wanted to raise him bilingual. My interest in languages became a focus and I decided to train as a Secondary Language teacher, and gained my PGCE in 2011. As a teacher I have seen first hand the benefit that learning languages can bring to children. It improves literacy, helps build confidence, and building a strong foundation for languages. The younger a child learns a language, the better! 

So I decided to launch my own children’s language business in a bid to engage youngsters in the joy of learning a foreign language at a much earlier age.  Along came Lingotot....! 

Lingotot lessons are a wonderful mix of interactive games, songs, stories and crafts conducted almost entirely in another language; you get to learn alongside your child whilst having lots of fun together. Classes are suitable for babies, toddlers and young children and we offer plenty of support for parents/grandparents so that you can continue your family's learning at home.

I will be working across schools, nurseries and in communities across Banbury and I'm so excited to be able to share my passion with you. 

If you'd like to see a Lingotot in a venue near you, please get in touch. You can reach me on the Lingotot Banbury Facebook page, or at

I'm looking forward to meeting you at a class soon! 

A bientôt & see you soon



  • From parents

My daughter always leaves the class repeating the words and actions she learned

"My 18 month old daughter

and I have been participating in

Annabelle's classes for a few months now and we love it.

As a French native, it is very important that she be exposed to French as much as possible, but it's difficult living in an English speaking country.

Since we started taking Annabelle's class, I have noticed that my daughter's French vocabulary has increased a lot. The classes are fun and engaging, and my daughter always leaves the class repeating the words and actions she learned, which is wonderful to see.

Thank you Annabelle!"

I was astonished

My husband "showed me this morning, that when he says “frapper”, Noah claps. 

I was astonished that he has absorbed that so quickly. He clearly associates French with his dad, because he doesn’t do it when I say it!"

All the best
