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!

 

*UPDATE* I'm so delighted to announce that LITTLE LINGOTOTS FRENCH returns to Portchester Parish Hall on Saturday mornings from Saturday 17th April at 10am with *NEW* LITTLE LINGOTOTS SPANISH at 11am.  Suitable for 0-5s and children in Key Stage 1.  £7.25 per class, 45 minute session, includes a termly workbook, colouring sheets and crafts linked to the lesson, a healthy snack, sibling discount available and under 1 siblings free. FREE TASTERs are available for anyone wanting to come along and try a session for the first time, with no obligation to continue.

*New Portsmouth classes* Little Lingotots (0-5) classes will be coming to Havelock Community Centre, Wednesday mornings 10-10.45am with our FREE LAUNCH CLASS on Wednesday 21st APRIL.  £7.50 per class, 45 minute session, includes a termly workbook, colouring sheets and crafts linked to the lesson, a healthy snack, sibling discount available and under 1 siblings free.  French/Spanish TBC - Please add your details to 'New Classes at Havelock CC'.

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 :)   

 

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.*

*UPDATE* Please message me at portsmouth@lingotot.com to enquire about ONLINE After School Clubs for children in Key Stages 1 & 2 weekday afternoons from 4pm - half hour group 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.  

I am also offering private 1-2-1 tuition, so please get in touch to discuss this option for your child.

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."
