Forest Hill Lingotot Centre
Hi and Hola!
I’m Lorraine and I’m a local mum who has worked in education for more than 20 years as a teacher, lecturer and assessor. I am excited to bring Lingotot to the area, where I look forward to introducing your children to the joy of learning a foreign language.
Since studying languages at university, I have spent many years using languages for work and leisure and I have enjoyed every minute of it! I’ve lived in Spain at various points of my career; first with a family whilst studying the language and then at various times as an undergraduate. After graduating I moved to Spain to teach in local language schools. I now want to bring this enjoyable experience to families in and around the local area.
Classes are taught using a variety of methods and styles by way of songs, stories, play, drama and crafts.
Classes are currently available in Spanish and are suitable for children aged 0-5 years. Parents/carers also attend the class so the whole family can enjoy learning a language together!
Lingotot also provide classes in German, Chinese and Arabic for ages 0-11 years.
If any of these languages are of interest to you or your child’s school or nursery, please get in touch and we will be happy to assist.

"Huge thank you for your classes."
"I wanted to say huge thank you for your classes. They were really great and Alice still enjoys singing the songs and asking me what things are in Spanish. Before we found Lingotot I had a Spanish nanny to look after her one morning a week...she didn’t learn anything from 3 hours of one-on-one time. After a few 45 mins Lingotot classes she was singing away and counting and pointing out colours in Spanish - such a difference!"

"My daughter really enjoys the classes."
My daughter really enjoys the classes. Sometimes she will just pop out with a Spanish word I didn't know she knew!

"Full of creativity and fun with lots of activities that brought us, the whole family, into a Spanish world with joy!!!"
Our family started Spanish Lingotot since our 1st boy, Leon, was 1 year 9 months without knowing Spanish. No one in our family is able to speak Spanish at all. His journey of learning Spanish started from your wonderful class. It was full of creativity and fun with lots of activities that brought us, the whole family, into a Spanish world with joy!!! Lingotots is the best platform for Leon on his Spanish journey. Now he is nearly 4 and he loves speaking, singing, reading, playing, doing everything in Spanish. It is so so encouraging and I am very grateful for this. His level of Spanish has gone far beyond my expectation, absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for a solid foundation of Spanish. This is the best gift ever that we gave to him and this could never have happened without having Lorraine and Forest Hill Lingotot's support.
Thank you so much.
I would highly recommend this class to everyone!
