Colchester Lingotot Centre

Colchester Lingotot Centre

Bonjour, Hola, Guten Tag, Nǐ Hǎo 你好!

My name is Lili and I live in Colchester, where my partner was born and bred. I am really pleased to have joined Lingotot, in a bid to share my passion and engage youngsters in the joy of learning foreign languages.

Lingotot is a multi-award winning languages programme which is delivered through community groups, nursery settings, and school classes - both as curriculum time teaching and lunch/after school clubs. Our core course for children 0-5 is fully linked to EYFS and we offer the ONLY accredited primary language courses in the UK. We teach over 12,000 children each week across the UK and there are more joining us every day.

I grew up in China, moved to the UK in 2004 and have enjoyed a successful career in international trading. However, I have always remained passionate about my heritage and, after the birth of my son Ethan, was disappointed not to find anything in the local area to help me share that with him. My favourite part of the job is to hear children and parents speaking Mandarin Chinese only after 1 session. I am truly proud and it makes me feel wonderful to be in a position to help young children and their families to learn it. 

What's more exciting is that I have an expanding team of fully qualified Lingotot practitioners to deliver other language classes including Spanish, French and possibly German. We currently run Mandarin Chinese, Spanish and French classes in Colchester and surrounding areas. If you can't attend our community classes because of work and would like to see us in your nurseries or schools, please get in touch and we'd be very happy to share Lingotot nursery and school sample resources. A free taster or assembly can also be arranged. We offer private tuition too!

Please follow us on facebook - "Lingotot Colchester" for class updates, scroll down to see class details, and don't hesitate to ask any questions by facebook message or email me on

It will be lovely to see you at a class very soon!

Franchise Resale Opportunity:

Lingotot Colchester is now looking for a new owner - great opportunity to be your own boss whilst helping more children to learn languages including Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese, German, Arabic and English as a second language! Join Lingotot family!!*** You don't have to be a teacher!

The business becomes available for resale because I recently gave birth to my second child. Whilst it's sad to let go of the business, I hope it creats a great opportunity for the right person to buy the Lingotot Colchester franchise and take the business from strength to strength!

Until we find the right buyer, the team and myself will continue to run and grow our classes so all our lovely Lingotots can stay with us along the language learning journey and even more children can benefit from the multi-award winning language programmes.

More information for potential buyers:
Since launching my first class on 24th Jul last year, I have built a fantastic team and together, we have been teaching many preschool and primary aged children. We offer Spanish, French and Mandarin Chinese already - the most commonly spoken languages that give great future career opportunities and have very interesting cultures. German and Arabic are yet to be added. We are really proud to see so many children have already responded to all target languages very well.

If you love children and are passionate about languages, this is definitely something you will enjoy! What's more, this is a fun, flexible business which you can build and grow around family life. The business provides a range of expansion opportunities according to your personal goals. There are lots of different income stream.
