Bexley Lingotot Centre

Bonjour / Guten Tag / Hola!

My name is Sarah and I live in Welling, South East London.  I am wife to Kerry (yes he has a girl's name), mum to daughter Freya (5 going on 15) and son Xander (2).  I have had a love of languages since I was very young.  In fact I remember a family holiday when I was 6 when I met a French girl and I asked my aunt and  cousins to teach me sentences so we could play.  I believe that was the start.  

I studied French and German Interpreting and Translating at degree, and then took a Masters in Translation and Technology.  I worked at an American Investment Bank for a number of years, looking after Benelux clients and using my languages on a daily basis.

Then along came the children and priorities changed, and I discovered Lingotot.  I worked as a tutor and Operations Manager for Lingotot Belvedere for over a year before buying Lingotot Bexley, and continue to teach French for them. 

I love teaching children and watching them process new words.  It is so rewarding to help them experience a new language and I have been known to well up when a child suddenly clicks and starts singing a song entirely in French much to their mum's astonishment.  Learning a language at a young age is so valuable as children truly are like sponges.  The younger they learn a second or third language, the more likely it is to become second nature to them, and a skill they can maintain forever.

Lingotot classes are packed full of interactive songs, games, stories, a craft and most importantly, they are fun!  All of the sessions are conducted almost entirely in the target language and in our community classes, you learn alongside your children.  Classes are suitable for babies, toddlers, young children and their parents/carers so that the whole family can enjoy learning a new language together.  

Lingotot Bexley teach in community classes, day nurseries, KS1 and KS2 at Primary Schools (PPA), Lunch and Afterschool clubs.  

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions at all about Lingotot, or about what you can do to support your learning journey at home.

I hope to see you in class soon.

à bientôt / bis bald / hasta pronto,

Sarah

Fantastic class

Fantastic class run by Sarah. Sarah is a very dynamic teacher and her enthusiasm for languages is amazing. 
Lingotot Bexley is a very structured class. The children learn by singing, playing, repeating words in a very playful way.

Dee's Childcare

Sarah has been hosting French Lingotot sessions with Dee’s Childcare, once a week during term time, for approximately four terms and has become a regular fixture in our setting, that the children look forward to and very much enjoy.

Sarah is not just professional and attentive to the quality of her delivery she is also very personable and friendly with children, who warmed to her immediately. Because of this Sarah’s sessions are not only fun and educational they are also friendly and warm, with lots of hugs on both sides.

Our setting accommodates children aged 6 months - 11 years. 90% of our parents have opted to have their child/ren participate in the sessions on the strength of word of mouth recommendations from other parents.

Sarah effectively adapts the content of her sessions to meet the different levels of the children in the setting. In doing so, she manages to successfully, engage all the children by setting them age appropriate activities, then bringing everything together at the end of the session, which makes it feel, for the children, like a fully participatory group effort.

Every session is a fun interactive opportunity for the children to learn new words and songs relating to real world themes and settings, which is further illustrated through arts & crafts, puppets, musical instruments and other pre-prepared props.

We welcome the growing relationship with Sarah and are expectant that Lingotots with Sarah may continue to be a regular staple in our setting, which offers great foundational linguistic learning to all the children who participate.
