About LINGOTOT PORTSMOUTH
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 20 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!

This is a 10 week course which will expand on pupils' previous knowledge of Spanish and introduce them to some extra fun-themed Spanish learning through songs, games, stories and craft!

*It's a wrap!* Wicor Primary Spanish After School Club
We had a lovely Summer term of After School Spanish Club at Wicor Primary School. Topics covered included At the Park, At the Beach, Weather and In the Garden. More details for the After School Club from September will be added soon. Since the Autumn term 2021, I have had the pleasure of teaching French and Spanish to children in Key Stage 2 at Wicor Primary school. I am now delighted to announce that I shall be working with Year 4 & 5 pupils at the school from this September. ¡Hasta pronto!
*NEW* LINGOTOT PORTSMOUTH TUTORS
I am looking to expand the Lingotot Portsmouth team this academic year and would love to hear from any language tutors/native speakers with teacher experience who may be interested in joining me in the local primary schools as PPA cover, and taking local community classes/nursery sessions in the Portsmouth/Fareham area. The schools are mainly looking for French, Spanish and German tuition, but other languages provided by Lingotot could be considered. Full training for teaching at Key Stages 1 and 2, and community classes, will be provided! I'm also looking for enthusiastic language students to help me run the holiday camps. Please drop me an email with any information about your experience and availability to Deborah at email@example.com.
I am currently unable to offer any new places for private 1-2-1 tuition, but please contact the main Lingotot website with your query and Head Office will be able to put you in touch with other amazing Lingotot teachers!

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."
- "My daughter had 1-2-1 French lessons with Deborah and really enjoyed all the session activities. She’s come a long way in her knowledge and comprehension of French and I have Deborah to thank for that. I would thoroughly recommend Lingotots Portsmouth and Deborah as a teacher. Thank you!"
- "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."
