Banbury Lingotot Centre

Bonjour! Hola! Hello!

My name is Annabelle and I am native French and qualified Language Teacher, offering languages classes to children 0 to 11 across the Banbury area. 

I teach French into Primary schools (covering PPA time or helping teacher gain confidence and running CPD), in pre-schools and nursery settings. I also run private online and face-to-face sessions, as well as French & Spanish holiday camps throughout the year.

My aim is to raise multi-cultural awareness and promote languages in my community, as I strongly believe every child should have the opportunity to be inspired to learn a new language, to discover and understand new cultures, as well as deepen their knowledge of their own language.

I love working in collaborations with schools, teachers, and parents to make their language learning successful and enjoyable, so children can develop the life skills they need and the desire to continue in their language learning journey in the future.

So if you want to inspire your children to learn a second and third language from a young age and open their mind to a wide range of opportunities, get in touch to discuss how I can help you in this wonderful journey


A bientôt & see you soon

"My daughter really enjoy learning French with lovely Annabelle from Lingotot Banbury! My child has a lot of fun playing games, singing, doing art&crafts, learning new words and listening to stories during her French lessons! We are very grateful Annabelle for inspiring our child to learn language and highly recommend her classes!"

The lesson today was amazing

Bonjour! The lesson today was amazing! Your were the superhero mom with the little ones around. We all can emphasize, especially now! Merci


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

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!"

After school club feedback

Annabelle, can I just say, from conversations today, the children loved your session yesterday.
Aurelia in particular was so excited to talk to me in French today - thank you!
Really look forward to next week 


Phil Goldsworthy, Headteacher at Cropredy Primary School

I was amazed at the progress that the class made over the year.

Madame Cointre taught my Reception class for 30 minutes every week. She was prompt, well prepared and always positive and committed to providing a successful lesson.

Sessions were always packed with opportunities to revisit previous learning and then build upon what they had learnt.

Mdme Cointre showed a great understanding of how children learn and the pace and style of her teaching was really engaging. She used a wide range of activities -singing, games and stories, all enhanced with lots of visual prompts; lessons were always great fun.

Her responses to the children were always positive, kind and thoughtful and they loved their weekly French sessions.

Her expertise, energy and enthusiasm were always evident and I was amazed at the progress that the class made over the year.

Thank you so much!

I would highly recommend Annabelle as her professionalism, flexibility and positivity has made the provision of French at St John’s a success.

At St John’s School we started French lessons with Annabelle during the Autumn term 2020. From the start the children were very engaged with their lessons. Annabelle follows a dedicated scheme which provides an excellent structure and clear progression.

The lessons are fun and interactive, and the children enjoy learning in a variety of ways.

During the lockdown periods Annabelle has facilitated learning remotely and the children have managed to keep up with the Programme.

I would highly recommend Annabelle as her professionalism, flexibility and positivity has made the provision of French at St John’s a success.
