What brought you here? I'll tell you what brought me here...

I loved watching my two children experience new things and learning about life. I've always loved learning, I went to uni at the ripe old age of 30 to study languages having served 10 years in the Royal Air Force as a linguist. I love learning so much that I decided to train as a primary school teacher and there I saw that children like learning too! They love the fun lessons, they love the silly games at the end of the day, children love listening to stories, they love learning as much as I do. Yay! My job was awesome. However, my husband worked away from home during the week, and it was becoming increasingly difficult to balance work, children, washing, a social life, house work, washing, and spend quality time with my husband at the weekends. 

At school, pupils would stumble over themselves to tell me the foreign words they knew. So whilst doing some washing one day, I got thinking; wouldn't it be great to teach languages to these children, to meet like-minded, fun-loving parents who love learning, who love watching their children learn about the big, wide world in which we live, with all its different cultures and languages? As I folded the white load I thought, yes, that would be wonderful! And so now, when I'm not doing the washing, I teach Spanish and French to children, and do you know what? It's wonderful! 

I teach in the COMMUNITY

I am lucky enough to offer fun community classes in Gloucester and Stroud. Classes are in Spanish or French for children aged 0-5. These sessions are for the grown ups to learn key vocabulary alongside their children in a fun and child-friendly way, so that they can continue using the target language at home in every day life. 

I teach to EARLY YEARS settings

I deliver French and Spanish to nurseries, playgroups and childminders. We can offer a full-colour workbook to track the child's learning journey, which also has ideas and tips to continue the learning long after Lingotot have left the building! Lessons last for 30 minutes and include lots of movement, games and fun! All children receive a certificate at the end of each 10 week block to celebrate their fabulous success. 

I teach in Primary Schools delivering PPA 

Do your staff lack the confidence to deliver MFL in your school? Perhaps they struggle to fit the KS2 requirements into the busy school day? I can deliver MFL to meet the National Curriculum's requirements while your teachers get on with their PPA. PPA can be for KS1 or KS2, and the KS2 course can even lead to a qualification! 


After School and lunch time clubs are available from Reception through to Year 3. These clubs are very much focussed on the fun element of learning a foreign language, with lots of games and songs in the target language. There is the option for a drama-based ASC for the older children. Clubs can be funded by schools or parents. For the latter, all of the administration is done by us. 

I teach to HOMESCHOOLED children and their families

Lingotot Gloucester offers lessons for groups of home educated children, following the National Curriculum for MFL. Please don't hesitate to email me for more details and to see if I cover your area. 

And that is why I am here. I hope that you share my love of languages and have found what you were looking for on my webpage.

If you can't see what you were looking for, or have any questions, please get in touch with me via email or via my Facebook page.
