Banbury Lingotot Centre

Bonjour! Hello!


I'm Annabelle - a qualified MFL teacher and mum to my gorgeous children, Liam, Elio and daughter Orianne.

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!

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. I then taught languages for two years before having my second and third children.

Since they all started school, it became clear that I needed to look for a career that could fit in around them, whilst still enabling me to teach French again and bring it to my community!

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 makes it much easier when your children come to GCSEs and beyond. The younger a child learns a language, the better! 

I also see in my own children an ability to pick up anything they are interested in, but also a love of learning through song, play, dance and creativity. This is what amazes me about the Lingotot method. We immerse our students into the language through everything they love doing - it is such a joy to watch the progession. Going to a Lingotot class really is like going to your favourite baby or toddler class, but with the added benefit of picking up a new language.


I would love to see you and your little linguists in a class soon!


A bientôt! See you soon! xx
