Lingotot Crystal Palace Centre

Hello, Hola and Ahlan,


My name is Sarah and 'my languages'  are English, Arabic and Spanish. As a 'pure' South London girl I was born and grew up in Sidcup, spent most of my growing life in and around Bexley, Bexleyheath and Bromley, and then moved to Clapham where I lived for 3 years. Since returning to the UK in 2021, I have lived in Greenwich ( the borough, not the town!) and I  now live in the fabulous South London suburb of Crystal Palace! Best part South of the Thames River, as far as I know! 

I am a bilingual English-Arabic speaker, and I grew speaking the Egyptian (or Amiyya) dialect of Arabic. Spanish is my third language, and because of my fascination with both Arabic and Spanish, I also hold a (BA) Hons in Modern Languages; Spanish and Arabic from the University of Westminster. I could go on about how Arabic and Spanish are very, very closely connected - (Andalus, anyone?), but I would prefer to save this for a face to face discussion or conversation :D 

I also have 11-12 years experience in customer service and administration, before I decided to shift my career to EFL teaching in Australia in 2018. This was by chance, as prior to that, I never really saw myself as a teacher, and never fathomed that I could have any sort of career in the languages and education sectors! Yet, thanks to this opportunity in Australia, I also hold a level 5 certificate in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). 

Fast forward to now, I am truly excited to have joined Lingotot and I look forward to working with you, so we can all make language learning fun, funky and joyful for children ( and adults alike!). 

Your local languages ethusiast,


Hasta Luego and Ma' As-salama!
