East Durham Lingotot Centre
Hallo! Bonjour! Hola!
I'm Lisa and I am the new franchisee for Lingotot East Durham, I am also a mum to two crazy boys, Matthew 11 and Jack 3&1/2 (yes that half is very important!).
I have always been passionate about languages (I blame the chalet school books with their English, German and French days!) and studied German, French and Spanish at GCSE and A-Level. I went on to university and got a degree in modern foreign languages teaching. I currently work part-time as a secondary school language teacher in East Durham. I have taught various combinations of the 3 languages throughout my career.
I have always loved discovering new cultures and being able to communicate with people from different countries and love opening my students' eyes to the world around them and the similarities and differences.
I enjoy working with children and have found my teaching career to be very rewarding but I'm ready for a channge of direction, so am really looking forward to joining lingotot.
At Lingotot East Durham we provide German, French and Spanish classes for children aged 0-11 years old. Our multi award winning amazing classes are interactive, friendly and, most importantly, fun; learning is through songs, games, stories, crafts and drama. The lingotot programme has been specifically designed to present the languages in an interactive, communicative and innovative way.
All the session are conducted almost entirely in the target language and in our community classes, grown-ups can learn alongside their children. The whole family joins in the fun!
Joining Lingotot was the perfect career for me as I could combine my passion for languages with my love of working with children, and being my own boss means I can make sure my own children don't miss out.
I can't wait to start this journey with all my Lingotots young and old!
