South Birmingham Lingotot Centre

Hola, Salut! I’m Katherine and I am bringing Lingotot language classes to Birmingham! We launched in September with Spanish and French in Harborne and Edgbaston, with a plan to offer Mandarin Chinese and Arabic in time.


I grew up fascinated by other languages and dreamt of a life speaking to people all over the world. University gave me a taste of living in France and Spain, and this really proved my passion for global languages and cultures. Then after spending ten years in logistics – shipping containers to Europe, Asia, South America, Africa – I realised that with French and Spanish I really could speak to everyone!

Bringing up my own son bilingual shows how quickly children learn – my little Mexican is my inspiration, he’s only 2 years old and he understands both English and Spanish perfectly.


Lingotot lessons are a wonderful mix of songs, stories and crafts almost entirely in another language. You’ll get to learn alongside your child whilst having lots of fun together. Classes are suitable for babies up to 11 years old, with plenty of support for parents/grandparents so that you can continue your family's learning at home.

Please contact me for a free trial at a community class, school assembly or a nursery taster session!

COMMUNITY CLASSES – a wonderful way to start your language journey, classes are suitable for babies, toddlers and older children and the whole family can enjoy learning together.

NURSERY CLASSES - French and Spanish for nurseries, playgroups and childminders. Each child receives a full-colour workbook to track their learning, full of ideas and activities to enjoy as a group!

SCHOOL CLUBS – lunch and after school clubs based on drama, singing or crafts, all in the target language.

UNIFORMED ORGANISATIONS - themed evenings for Brownies, Rainbows, Beavers, Cubs, Boys and Girl's Brigade etc. For Brownies we can help you work towards Stages 1-2 of the Languages Badge.


I look forward to meeting you and your little linguists soon!

¡Hasta luego! À bientôt !

Very interactive for the children!

The children were very engaged with a variety of familiar nursery rhymes and props, and Katherine was able to extend the children's vocabulary skills and encouraged them to repaet after her and join in.

"It was very interactive for the children and it helped us staff members with the use of language to support our dual language children"

"It was a pleasure to have Katherine in the nursery and she communicated excellently with us in the lead up to the sessions. Katherine was very prepared and organised for the sessions and both staff and children found them engaging and enjoyable"

Loves his weekly Spanish lesson!

William loves his weekly Spanish lesson and is already picking up some key words. He talks lots at home about when it’s going to be his next Spanish lesson!! It’s a great and informal class combining music, crafts and stories and Katherine is lovely (& a patient teacher!)
William is only 3 and been doing Spanish since mid-September but already he is remembering the words he has learnt, saying buenas noches at bedtime!

My 2 year old really engaged!

We really enjoyed our Zoom class online. My 2 year old was really engaged and enjoyed the singing and role play. I highly recommend this class!

Love these lessons!

Love these half hour lessons, just the right amount of new words for little ones to take in, all taught in a fun and interactive way! Very enjoyable and educational with songs and games at a great pace for little learners.

Kids had lots of fun!

My taster experience was very good. Katherine the teacher was energetic and kind, the kids had fun with the songs and the mimics, and the stories were short so they could concentrate. The art, craft time was great to focus their attention to something different and creative!

Makes French easy to learn

Highly recommend!
Our classes have been online due to Corona; however, they’re engaging, fun and make French easy to learn. Definitely give it a try!

Kelsey F

Enjoyed it a lot!

We did an impromptu online class today and it was structured in a nice way to teach the language through song and games. My daughter enjoyed it a lot. Thank you

Carolina K-T

She loves the class!

My daughter has just completed a term of French. She loves the action songs, crafts and stories in Katherine's sessions and so do I!

Cherrelle D

Loved it!

We did our first (online) session today and loved it! It’s brilliant that we could join in by the magic of technology and learn some fun new French songs and listen to a story. It was fun to be able to dash off and find our own props to use alongside Katherine on the screen! Looking forward to the next one.
