Gravesend Lingotot Centre

Gravesend Lingotot Centre


My name is Jaclyn and I run Lingotot Gravesend. This is a new venture for me after working in London for many years, but after the birth of my son, I wanted something that combined my passion for languages with the flexibility needed for family life.

I have family in Andalucía and we visit often, so Spanish has always been part of my life and is a reason I studied it from a young age. It’s wonderful being able to dive into another culture and I wanted that same opportunity for my son. I looked for classes in the area but couldn’t find any for his age, which was really disappointing because young children soak up languages so quickly.

There really is an advantage to introducing children to languages at a young age, and it’s exciting that I am now able to bring this award winning programme to Gravesend. The Lingotot classes are full of fun with songs, stories, games and crafts, it's such a great way for the children to learn, and before they realise it, they will have learnt many new words. I think it is wonderful that I will be able to play a part in children’s enjoyment of languages and I love teaching my little Lingotots!

I'm so pleased to have won several awards recently (Best for Learning in Kent in the 2019 Hoop Awards, Lingotot's Best New Franchisee & Shooting Star awards) as well as having been shortlisted for the Club Hub awards and Kent Women In Business awards.

Currently we are running our Spanish classes online via Zoom and have lots of classes per week for all ages from 0-11 years. Normally we run parent and child community classes at our fantastic venue the Eastgate centre in Gravesend, as well as our Spanish after school & lunch clubs at schools, nursery classes and private 1-2-1's. Don't forget to also keep up to date with everything we're doing by following us on Facebook at Lingotot Gravesend and if you're interested in a free assembly or taster class, please get in touch!

!Hasta pronto!

Joining your class has been one of the best decisions we've made

Just wanted to pass on a little moment we just had. Maya loves Dylan’s star light in his room and Dylan wanted her to go and play in there. He went over to her, knelt down and said “Maya, donde estas estrellas?” Without any prompting and as natural as anything. Like you said I don’t think he even thinks of it now, he just slips odd Spanish words in quite a bit. Joining your class has been one of the best decisions we’ve made.

Thank you so much

Super impressed

I must say that my family were all very impressed listening to Lily singing twinkle little star in Spanish. They thought it was amazing; and that she can count to 10 (which I too am super impressed by!). My uncle and aunt volunteer at an old age home and my uncle was so proud he played a recording of Lily trying to teach me twinkle to anyone who would listen. Thank you so much. Lily really does enjoy learning Spanish. She has made me a very proud mommy...

Honestly amazed!

I just wanted to say what an amazing job you have done teaching my daughter Skylar (in the Chatham Busy Bees class). She has spent this weekend asking for food (mainly ham and potatoes) in Spanish and today was walking around a lake pointing out ‘patos’ (at the ducks) and singing and counting in Spanish so confidently- I’m honestly amazed! So thank you.

Wonder Years Daycare

We are so lucky to have Jaclyn from Lingotot come to our daycare every week, our preschoolers and KS1 children love her lessons and have a great understanding of how and what she teaches. The songs are very catchy and we all sing them throughout the day even the adults!
