Southend-on-Sea Lingotot Centre
¡Hola! Bonjour! Welcome to Lingotot Southend-On-Sea!
My name is Kate, proud mummy of two gorgeous girls, Scarlet (7) and Genevieve (2), and I run Lingotot Southend-On-Sea.
Joining the Lingotot team 18 months ago was a huge career change for me, after working in the finance industry in London for so many years, but I absolutely love what I do now and I haven't looked back. Languages have always been my passion and, following the birth of my little Genevieve, I decided to completely change my career to combine this passion with offering more flexibility around my family. I’m thrilled to be able to help others to love languages as much as I do!
I was lucky enough to travel to France and Belgium quite a bit as a very young child and was exposed to all these new sounds and tastes and experiences, which I found very exciting! I also had Au Pairs from all over Europe whilst growing up and was fascinated when they would teach me how to count, the words to a song or tell me what I was eating in all their different languages. From a young age, I was thoroughly hooked and tried my best to perfect the accents!
I studied French, Spanish and German at school and then went on to study French and Spanish at degree level, and it’s wonderful for me to finally be able to put my linguistic skills to use whilst helping a new generation develop that same passion.
Children are better equipped to learn languages from very early on and this helps them to develop fantastic social skills, understand different cultures and to communicate with a lot more people. Our award-winning Lingotot classes are fun and interactive with songs, games, stories and crafts all designed to help children learn without them even realising they’re doing so! I honestly can’t wait to hear the children start using their language skills!
Please scroll down to find a list of all available classes and details of how to book. Don’t forget to keep up to date with everything we’re doing on Facebook by following Lingotot Southend and please don’t hesitate to send me a message if you have any questions at all!
¡Hasta luego! À bientôt!
Due to coronavirus, care homes have had to close their doors to protect their residents.
We don't want the residents to feel forgotten so we have launched a campaign and we are asking you all to join us. It is called Generations 1, 2, 3 and it is 3 things we could all do to help our local elderly population at this difficult time.
1. Encourage children to draw pictures and write letters to local elderly neighbours and care homes.
2. Email videos to care homes of the children talking about their day
3. Pop a note through the door of elderly neighbours offering help...use our printable help cards.
Read all about it via the link below and discover how you can get involved and to download cards you can pop through their door to offer help.
