Swindon Lingotot Centre
My name is Katja and I will be running German classes with Lingotot Swindon.
A little about me, I am half German and grew up bilingual here in Swindon. German was introduced to me when I was 5 years old, when my little brother was born. I learned most of my German just listening to my mum speak German to others & watching German TV. I was so interested in the language and wanted to get to know the culture more, that I moved to Germany as an au-pair for 9 months and then did a 3 year apprenticeship over there before coming back to the UK. I also au-paired in Spain for a Spanish family over a summer and was so amazed to see that although the parents could hardly speak any English, the kids spoke it perfectly. This is when I realised that you can bring up your children speaking any language you like, even if you do not speak the language yourself. I am now a mother to my wonderful 1 year old daughter, whom I am also raising bilingually.
Lingotot lessons are very fun and interactive, full of songs, games, stories and crafts, all of which is conducted almost entirely in German.
I will be running German classes for nurseries, after school clubs, and community classes in the Swindon area. Our classes are suitable for kids between the ages 0 -11 year old.
