Buckhurst Hill Lingotot Centre
Welcome to Lingotot Buckhurst Hill!
My name is Mandy and I run Lingotot Buckhurst Hill. I live in Buckhurst Hill with my husband and our two daughters Lila Rose (5) and Anaya (3).
Languages have always been a big part of my life. I grew up in a bilingual household in the south of France and have spoken French to my daughters since they were born so they could benefit from a young age as I did. My eldest is bilingual and always interested in learning new words! She even teaches her dad and corrects his pronunciation!
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. From a very early age, children have an amazing ability to learn languages. Lingotot classes are packed full of songs, games, stories, crafts and most impotantly, they are fun!
I currently teach children in nurseries and preschools in Buckhurst Hill and Loughton. I run a lunch club for KS1 children in a school in Buckhurst Hill and I do a community class at the Loughton Baptist Church for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.
Private lessons are also available.

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.
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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.
