North Leeds Lingotot Centre
¡Hola! Bonjour! Guten Tag! Ciao!
My name is Eimear and I'm delighted to welcome you to Lingotot North Leeds! I can’t wait to share my love for languages with our local children and their families
I grew up and currently live in Leeds, however I studied International Business and Spanish at University in Newcastle I completed a year abroad in Chile where my passion for teaching and languages really ignited. I was teaching English during this year and fell in love with it. I also learnt so much about Chilean culture and improved my Spanish skills immensely. During my final year of university, I decided I wanted to go into teaching languages to show children the amazing fun and diverse opportunities that come with it. The cultural side to learning languages is an important part of entering an increasingly global world and when better to start learning this than at school! I then went on to complete my PGCE to kickstart my teaching career.
I have taught languages in high schools, and in a special needs primary school. I noticed how many children responded so well to my passion for the subject, therefore, I wanted to continue this in my local area. I always work on making language learning fun and exciting for children and I can’t wait to continue with this.
Now I have the pleasure of opening Lingotot North Leeds. Our award-winning Lingotot language classes are fun and interactive with songs, games, stories, and crafts all designed to help children learn naturally, without them even realising that they’re doing so. Our Community Classes are suitable for babies, toddlers, young children and their parents or carers so the whole family can enjoy learning a new language together!
Lingotot North Leeds will initially be offering Spanish Community Classes to under 5s and their parents or carers. Soon, Lingotot will be offering Spanish sessions in nurseries, KS1 and KS2 at Primary Schools (PPA), Lunch and After-School clubs as well as Holiday Camps, with new languages to follow.
Our aim is to give children a positive association with languages early on in their lives. They gain a huge amount of confidence and self-esteem from our classes, and the benefits to their wider academic success and development are numerous. Older class groups attain a solid base to take with them into secondary school and further into their lives. Learning languages leads to ample opportunities!
Please get in touch with any questions via email or phone and look out for all the latest information on nearby classes on this website page, on Facebook and on Instagram.
I look forward to welcoming you and your little linguists to our classes soon!
