Tyne and Wear Lingotot Centre

Tyne and Wear Lingotot Centre

Bonjour! ¡Hola!

I am Michelle, a qualified MFL teacher and mammy to two very lively, happy children - Faye, aged 9 and James aged 5.

Having always been enthusiastic about languages, I started my Lingotot journey in 2014 with my best friend Anya. After Anya moved to Luxembourg with her family, I continued to grow my Lingotot business and now run 8 Lingotot territories across the North East, known as Lingotot Tyne and Wear. 

I believe passionately about giving children the opportunity to learn another language and am very proud to be able to offer this across the North East of England. Both myself and Anne, our fabulous Operations Manager, together with a team of fabulous tutors, are dedicated to giving your children the chance to open all those doors that learning a language can offer.

Lingotot classes are fun, interactive and designed to introduce your child to a new language through games, songs, stories and crafts. All of our sessions are conducted almost entirely in the target language and can be held in community centres, leisure centres, church halls, nurseries and primary schools. Classes are suitable for babies, toddlers, young children and their parents/carers so the whole family can enjoy learning a new language together! 

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our classes soon!

Unfailingly enthusiastic - the children love the fun, interactive sessions with Michelle

Michelle has attended Bright Sparks Nursery once a week since January 2018, teaching the children
French. The children are really excited when she arrives and love the fun, interactive sessions. Staff
and parents have been amazed at what the children have learned through songs, games, movement
and stories and the children can often be heard counting in French and using French words during
the week.
Michelle is unfailingly enthusiastic and helpful, inspiring both children and staff and we would not
hesitate to recommend Lingotot to other nurseries.

Lingotot After School Clubs - Highly recommended

My 5 year old daughter has been doing Lingotots at Forest Hall Primary school for over a year now and absolutely loves it. The teacher Adele uses lots of songs, and arts & crafts to make it lots of fun. My daughter is always so excited before and after the class. I highly recommend Lingotots!

Lingotot has helped my daughter to reach her milestones early and improved her social confidence

Myself and my daughter absolutely love this class. It's incredibly interactive and engaging. My daughter was just 5 months when we started learning Spanish through lingotots and some friends and family were a little sceptical initially but we've already seen lots of developmental benefits as a result of the sessions. I love the fact that the sessions are mixed ages and genuinely believe that the interaction with older children has helped my daughter to meet her milestones early and really improved her social confidence. We both love Adele, our teacher. She's so engaging and great at making sure each weeks activities are fun and relevant. My daughter lights up with smiles each week when she sees Adele and all of the other children and mums at the class. I would 100% recommend Lingotot's - this is a class that is enjoyable and developmental for both child and parent.

Matthew Ward, Headteacher Grange First School Gosforth

“As a school we have recognised the importance of modern foreign languages for a
long time, not only in terms of learning the language itself but in introducing our
students to different cultures and experiences. In the past we have taken children on
visits to Spanish restaurants and immersed them in Spanish culture as a way to
enhance their thirst for learning.
However, given the challenges of the new curriculum we decided to enhance our
MFL offering further and bring in specialist expert teachers to work with our KS2
students. We wanted someone who could bring language learning to life within the
classroom which is why we decided to team up with Lingotot.
Lingotot not only brings a rich resource of material in to school designed specifically
to enthuse our KS2 children but it also provides a specialist teacher who has an indepth
knowledge and understanding of both the Spanish language and culture and
the ability to engage at the right level with the children.
Without a doubt this has had a hugely positive impact in a relatively short space of
time. The pupils enjoy the lessons which are often taught through music and song
and they have responded well to the unique approach, developing a rich vocabulary
and a genuine interest in the language and the culture.
Lingotot provides valuable PPA cover for our classroom teachers, allowing them to
build upon other areas of the curriculum.”
