Bonjour, Hola

My name is Catharine and I run Lingotot in North Manchester. We cover the areas of Prestwich, Whitefield, Unsworth, Sunnybank and South Bury. I fell in love with foreign languages at school, and I was lucky enough to study languages at University. I spent seven years sharing my passion for languages with teenagers while working as a secondary Spanish and French teacher.  I have my own two young daughters who absolutely love singing Lingotot songs, and my yongest daughter won't got to sleep without at least three renditions of "brilla, brilla estrella"!
Classes are interactive and fun, yet based on sound educational research. Learning is through songs, stories, games, drama and play. Children have so much fun they don’t realise they are learning! We speak 100% in the foreign language but our skills and expertise ensure everyone understands. Following our carefully tried and tested methodology, you and your child could leave the very first class responding to the new language

In our community classes, the children (and parents!) are introduced to the language through play, songs, storytelling, crafts and lots and lots of fun! We run sessions during term time in blocks of 12 weeks and you can join at any point during the term. We also offer plenty of support, so you can continue your family's language learning journey at home. We teach the adults who attend at the same time as the children and you don't have to have any prior knowledge of a language. Trust us to lead the whole family through your language-learning journey with our tips on how to continue at home. We will never put you on the spot or ask anyone to speak until they are ready!

We also provide PPA cover and extended services (breakfast, lunch and after school clubs) in primary schools and conduct sessions in pre-schools and nurseries. We are delighted to be teaching the children at St Hilda's and St Margaret's Primary Schools in Prestwich and would be thrilled to be able to teach evern more children soon!

Also don't forget to check out my Facebook page to keep up to date with our latest news and competitions.

It will be lovely to see you at a class very soon!
Hasta pronto y à bientôt!
