South Havering Lingotot Centre

¡Hola! Bonjour!


My name is Monica Moreno, I am from Venezuela and I live Hornchurch, London with my partner Chris and my handsome son, Alejandro. I have always had a passion for teaching languages, I still remember when I was in secondary school, when I used to teach English to my cousins and they enjoyed it, my mum saw that in me and encouraged me to go to the University and study Education.

I studied at University and attained my degree in Education (Teaching English), a few years later I got my master’s degree in Leadership and Management in Education. Once qualified I worked as an English Teacher for 8 years in Primary, Secondary Schools and at University!

When I arrived in the UK, I was lucky enough to get a position teaching Spanish in primary education. I have also taught English as a second language at a UK adult college.

I have always loved teaching, especially through songs, dancing and rhymes and making children enjoy, laugh, and learn at the same time. Having my own academy has been my dream, as it combines teaching and the opportunity to spend quality time with my family without sacrificing what I love doing, teaching languages. Lingotot has meant that I can run my own business around the needs of my family and I still get to teach languages through interactive activities – Great match!

Lingotot lessons introduce children to a new language through a unique combination of song, movement, stories, and games. Classes are suitable for babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers, and primary school aged children as well as parents and carers, all designed to allow the whole family to learn together.

I would love to see you in a class very soon. Please do get in touch if you have any questions.


¡Hasta luego! À bientôt!

  • From parents

Santino absolutely loves the class!

"We were so happy to find the Lingotots under 5s class for my son, Santino, as languages are very important to us. Santino absolutely loves the class, learning with lots of singing and dancing, toys and instruments; he has made new friends and after only 6 months he understands lots of words. Santino loves his teacher Ms Monica. She is so lovely with the children and makes learning so fun for them. I would absolutely recommend this class to anyone, it's amazing to see how quickly the children pick up Spanish while so young. Santino is not the only one to has made friends, it's a great place for parents as well and this is something that has been so important to me" 

Emmie, Santino's mum

The Spanish lessons are amazing!!!

"We found about Lingotot through google searching toddler language groups nearby. When we first signed in, I just thought my could have a safe environment to play with other children and learn some Spanish at the same time. The Spanish lessons are amazing and the teacher is so lovely. My son loves it a lot. To my surprise, only after a few weeks of lessons Jack started to say a few words in Spanish at home. We are extremely happy and would continue with Lingotot"

Lily, Jack's mum from Parent-Child group

Rio's favourite lessons!!!

"My son Rio goes to a few Spanish baby classes but Monica Lingotot Spanish lesson is by far his favourite. He absolutely loves it. He is very attached to Monica as she is fantastic with kids and makes a new language fun by stories, songs and dancing. We are so glad we found Monica and I have been fortunate enough to be on her first customers and its so lovely to see her class grow with more happy parents. Thank you so much Monica, can't wait for some many lessons with you"
