Portsmouth Lingotot Centre

Portsmouth Lingotot Centre

Bonjour, hola, hallo!  My name is Deborah, I am a Portsmouth-born gal and I live in the Fareham area with my husband and young family.  I am a violinist by trade and have loved spending the past 18 years teaching as a peripatetic music teacher in local schools and colleges.  I also have a degree in Modern Foreign Languages and was looking for something where I could combine my love of music (through singing), teaching and languages - and Lingotot was exactly what I was looking for!  I love the Lingotot approach to language learning for little ones; fun and engaging sessions, learning languages in a natural way, as we would do with our native language.  Lingotot Portsmouth was launched in September 2020 and is busy establishing itself within the Fareham and Portsmouth areas!

 

Classes continue online during March, and I am currently planning EXCITING LIVE EVENTS for the Summer months - including LINGOTOT FOREST SCHOOL at Stubbington Study Centre in June!  (Please see 'Current Classes' under 'French and Spanish Forest School' and go to 'Details' for more info.)  *A TIMETABLE of the daily activities is now available on the French Forest School and Spanish Forest School pages.*  I am also offering private 1-2-1 tuition, so please get in touch to discuss this option for your child.

Our current Little Lingotots French class (suitable for 0-7 year olds) will continue on Saturday mornings at 10am online throughout March (£5 per family for a half hour session).  Please add your details to the Online Little Lingotots French FREE TASTER list for a complimentary session and I can contact you with more information. 

Little Lingotots Spanish (suitable for 0-7 year olds) will also continue online Saturday mornings at 11.30am (£5 per family for a half hour session). Please add your details to the Online Little Lingotots Spanish FREE TASTER list for a complimentary session and I can contact you with more information.  

 

*UPDATE* Please message me at portsmouth@lingotot.com to enquire about ONLINE After School Clubs for children in Key Stages 1 & 2 on a Friday from 3.30pm - half hour sessions for £5.  Lessons will be payable in advance in monthly instalments, with everyone offered a free initial session.  Lingotot workbooks are available for the different Key-Stages.  

 

Once current Lockdown restrictions are eased, we shall resume our Saturday morning face to face classes in Portchester with LITTLE LINGOTOTS French 9.45am (please note earlier time) and LITTLE LINGOTOTS SPANISH 10.45am.

*New* Little Lingotots (0-5) classes will be coming to Havelock Community Centre, Wednesday mornings in Portsmouth when it is safe to resume face to face sessions again.  £7.50 per class, 45 minute session, includes colouring sheets and crafts linked to the lesson, a healthy snack, sibling discount available and under 1 siblings free.  More details soon!

Please be assured that face to face clases will be able to run in a safe way when current restrictions are eased.  Social distancing will be maintained at all times, with our small group (adults wearing masks) within a spacious setting.  There is no sharing of props, but plenty of fun and action games and songs to keep little ones entertained.  Craft packs and snacks are prepared well in advance of the session :)     

   

Lingotot Portsmouth also offers:

Nursery and Preschool sessions

KS1 and KS2 lessons at Primary Schools (PPA cover)

Lunch time and After School clubs

Parent testimonials taken from 'Reviews' at Lingotot Portsmouth's Facebook page

- "I have been attending Deborah’s classes with my son for 6 months now, since he was 6 months old and I cannot rate her classes enough. Classes are a lot of fun, we do singing and story time, it’s a relaxed atmosphere for both the adults and the kids so much that you hardly notice you are learning a new language. The homework is fun and manageable for busy households and definitely improves your confidence with both speaking and understanding French.
My son is starting to babble now so it will be exciting times to see if he talks in both French and English. I highly recommend learning a new language with your child and Deborah’s classes are truly value for money."

 

- "It’s great to have a group that both children and parents can enjoy and benefit from, I wasn’t expecting to learn as much as I did! Thank you."
