South Belfast Lingotot Centre

Ciao! Bonjour! Hola!

Welcome to Lingotot South Belfast!

My name is Grazia and I opened the Belfast branch of Lingotot in March 2020. I was born and raised in the Abruzzo region of Italy, I spent all my school holidays in the region of Puglia, & I left home to travel and discover the beauty of other countries, culture and ultimately other languages.
Languages have always been a huge part of my life. I have lived in Ireland & France before Belfast became my home in 2006 where I now live with my northern-Irish husband and my two boys who are 8 and 6. 



Grazia: Business owner. Native Italian and fluent French and Spanish speaker. I teach some Italian and French classes/camps/workshops but mostly I do the work behind the scenes.

French Family yoga

I attended a yoga session at Maitri studio with my son. The session was great, my son really enjoyed and so did I. The activities were well planned and included yoga animal poses, while learning their names in French. Julie, lead the class and kept everyone engaged with games, phisical movement and music. Can't wait to go back after the holiday break.


French Lingochat - Adult One to One

Julie is very engaging. I really enjoyed the sessions with her. Highly recommended for adullt one to one and group sessions.


Italian Mini-camp July 2021

Brilliant outdoor mini-camp. Grazia organizes lots of brilliant activities to keep the children active. My daughter came back every time superchatty telling me about all things they did. Highly recommended!


French 2 days holiday camp

My daughter loved the French holiday mini-camp in May. She didn't want to come home. We hope there will be more camps and we'll definitely join again.

School 6 weeks pilot programme

The lessons are interactive and engaging. The children thoroughly enjoyed the sessions.

There was good repetition of the vocabulary and this allows the children to easily recall the new words that were introduced.

The activities were active and involved physical movement. This is great as nobody gets bored or loses concentration however sometimes the children needed a little reminder that the whole point was to reinforce the French words. The excitement levels got a little high occasionally and it was good that you were able to stop and remind everyone what they needed to do!

The 6 week session was perfect and I liked the way that you were able to introduce other vocabulary such as Colours, Greetings and Numbers as well. This means that the children are actually learning more than just the Animals vocabulary.

The workbooks are excellent and would compliment the sessions beautifully. I think that perhaps these may be a little long for our own needs but I can see how they may be partly used or broken down into smaller chunks to use from time to time.
