West Colchester Lingotot Centre

West Colchester Lingotot Centre

I'm over the moon to be bringing Lingotot languages to the families of West Colchester. Babies and children of all ages will love our fun and friendly French and Spanish classes, and i'm sure their grown ups will too!

As you may have guessed, I am extremely enthusiastic about learning languages!  But I didn't start that early myself, only having the opportunity to start French and Spanish at age 12.  It was love from the start, and I enjoyed mostly brilliant teaching which helped me along the way, and made me realise that I wanted to be a languages teacher in the future.

When I had my third baby last year, I wanted to find a job that would allow me to fit my work around family life.  I found a perfect match in Lingotot, especially as I also happen to love singing and playing piano!  I signed my baby boy up for our nearest class age 4 months and, to my amazement, he was fascinated by the songs and listened avidly to the stories.  Even though he couldn't participate in the craft, he loved to watch the older children absorbed in their activity and also enjoyed having a play with some French books and toys.

Some people may think it unusual to take a baby to a languages class...  but really, it's the best time to start!  Children are ready to absorb all the new sounds surrounding them, and are hard-wired to listen, watch and communicate.  In addition to the benefits for our little people, mums, dads, nannies, grandads and all the caregivers have the opportunity to re-visit the language they learnt at school, or indeed to learn a brand new language.  In my classes you can expect to hear a lot of "target language" (French/ Spanish) but don't worry, I will always ensure you understand.  Come along and give it a try!

Steph’s wonderful French classes

Both my daughters (5 months and 3 years) attend Steph’s wonderful French classes. My youngest attends a baby class specific for under 3’s, and my eldest attends the child 3-7 class. Both classes are tailored to their specific age, which is great as it maximises learning for their different stages. My 3 year old in particular really loves her class, and has gone from not knowing any words in French to using the language in her everyday life, purely because of these wonderful classes and Steph’s teaching techniques. I would highly recommend Steph’s class for children of all ages, and want to thank her for getting my child so enthused about the French language!


They are learning without even realising it!

I highly recommend Lingotot West Colchester! My 4 year old twins Mark and Lillian have been spending their Friday morning lockdown learning French with Stephanie They are really enjoying the classes as Stephanie make them so fun and entertaining! Lillian talks about seeing a papillon in the garden while Mark loves tete epaule genoux pieds! Stephanie has such a lovely way with the children that they are learning without even realising it! Stephanie has kept us sane every Friday during lockdown! 


Brilliant for all children to do!

‘I love Lingotot classes because I have such a great teacher and she is really nice, I love my teacher! The lessons are good and fun and it keeps you on track with learning your French. Lingotot is so nice and brilliant for all children to do!’
