Buckhurst Hill Lingotot Centre

Welcome to Lingotot Buckhurst Hill!


My name is Mandy and I live in Buckhurst Hill with my husband and our daughters Lila Rose (7) and Anaya (5). Having been born and raised in a bilingual home in the South of France, my love of languages developed from a very young age. I have been speaking French to my own children since they were born so they could benefit from learning a second language from a young age like I did. Both are bilingual and always interested in learning new words.

After completing my baccalaureate In France, I came to London to study Marketing Communications and worked as a manager for Breitling for a number of years. 

Then along came the children and priorities changed, and I discovered Lingotot.

I am really excited to share my passion through this award-winning programme and open up the world of modern languages to children living in our community. Lingotot classes are packed full of songs, games, stories, crafts and most importantly, they are fun!

I have been teaching French to children aged 0-11 years for the past 3 years. 

I love teaching children, and watching them grow, develop and learn. It is so rewarding to help them experience a new language and watch them progress. 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.  

I currently teach in nurseries, preschools, schools (French clubs), community classes (parents and babies) and also do private tuition.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions about Lingotot.


A bientôt,

The children very much enjoy the Lingotot classes

The children at Queens Baby Nursery very much enjoy the Lingotot classes each week. They have begun to grasp some of the language and can now join in by saying key words to the song. 

The classes are sensory and interactive for the small babies by using scarfs and hand movements. The familiarity of the songs is very enjoyable for the children and helps the staff to support by also learning key words.

Highly recommend

Today we went à la chasse à l'ours and loved every minute! A great class all around the same theme which really helps to memorise new vocabulary... and it was fun too! Lots of singing, actions, reading and crafts - highly recommend.

The teacher is brilliant

For a long time I was looking for a toddler group like this and when I found it I realised that it's much better than I expected. Very warm and welcoming environment. The teacher is brilliant, always goes above and beyond communicating and teaching the children new language skills. Also within learning first words in French, children are singing, dancing, doing crafts and enjoying lovely snacks. Lovely teacher Mandy always finds the best way to interact with children and also with parents.

Thanks Mandy!

Mandy is an amazing friendly, likeable teacher who makes both my daughter and I very welcome to her classes. They are fun, imaginative and makes learning easy and engaging for the little ones! There's singing, stories, arts and crafts which my daughter really enjoys - it's a great way for her to learn a new language fast and in a way that's so easy to pick up!

Lisa, mum of Meadow

Great mix of activities

My 2 year old loves his Lingotot classes! They offer a great mix of activities in a cosy environment. I've been really surprised by how much he's learnt already. If anyone asks him about his French class, he uses the words he's been taught and can sing them a song.

My French is improving too!

We love these Lingotots French classes! My one year old really enjoys all the songs, games and activities and he’s learning lots at the same time. They’re very friendly classes and my French is improving too!

Pamela, mum of Edward

Thank you

I wanted to thank you for a great session yesterday, I think your class is brilliant. Saraya is loving it and out of the blue today she counted to 10 in French! She hasn't done that in English yet!
