East Durham Lingotot Centre

Hallo! Bonjour! Hola!

I'm Lisa and I am the franchisee for Lingotot East Durham, I am also a mum to two crazy boys, 12 and 4&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 and love the buzz of someone getting something! 

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 especially the similarities and differences.  

I enjoy working with children and have found my teaching career to be very rewarding and am loving doing Lingotot alongside this and teaching children all the way from birth to 16!

At Lingotot East Durham we provide German, French and Spanish classes for children aged 0-11 years old. Our multi award winning classes are interactive, friendly and, most importantly, fun; learning is through songs, games, stories, crafts and drama. 

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.

Community Class Satisfaction

Lisa's classes are great fun and very relaxed, my little boy really looks forward to them and was spontaneously singing Spanish songs at home from the second or third week! (I've secretly enjoyed learning Spanish too!).
