Run your own multilingual Lingotot children's language business. Multi award-winning and professional franchise for children aged 0-11 in French, Spanish, German, Chinese (Mandarin) and Arabic. Click to listen to Davina from Lingotot Shrewsbury and Telford.
We currently teach languages to 12,000 children aged from 0-11 every week in the UK in community centres, nurseries and schools. We excel at delivery within schools and we are proud that our KS2 courses are now all accredited in all of our languages.
You choose which languages to teach and which kinds of classes:
Pre-school and nursery classes: Children learn through a mixture of structured lessons, craft activities and free play. The structured lessons include a lot of singing, storytelling, fun props and games.
KS1 in schools: Children learn more about how to describe their everyday lives and interests in the target language, thus encouraging them to use the language outside the classroom environment. The children continue to enjoy their interactive and fun lessons, but by now we start to add in some simple writing.
KS2 in schools: Our flagship course, our accredited KS2 MFL course links with the KS2 MFL framework and references the primary literacy strategy and almost every other part of the primary curriculum. As with other schemes all planning and resources are provided. The teaching style remains the same; fun, interactive and highly motivating for students. However at this stage there is a much greater emphasis on writing and grammar.
Drama and After School Clubs: You can choose from language classes as described above or our new LingoStars drama classes - foreign language drama classes in French, Spanish, German, Chinese (Mandarin) and Arabic!

I was previously a full time primary teacher and found the workload and politics did not provide me with a good work-life balance, and I felt I was missing out on watching my children grow up.
I operate my business part time as it offers me the best balance between teaching fun lessons and being able to spend time and do things with my own boys – I’ve never yet had to miss my son’s first day of nursery, his first nativity play etc – all things I would have missed if I wasn’t part of Lingotot!
After just 6 months of running my business, I expanded my business. My community classes also trebled in numbers within the first year.
I used to be a secondary school teacher and I’ve always thought about the gap in the market for this and thought that it would have been a great thing to do with my children. I work part time and most of my classes are fitted around the children’s school run. I never work over the holidays.
I feel like Lingotot does understand how it’s franchisees want to flexible and have a work life balance that fits around their families, because that is exactly what our Franchisor was doing when she founded it. She knows exactly what it is like, so puts herself into our shoes. Everything is done so that we can work around it. Whenever I need help, I get it straight away. I’ve never had a problem that hasn’t been solved.
Absolutely love it! I now have three franchises, excellent support and now KS2 Accredited! Best thing I ever did!by Michelle Marsland, Lingotot North Tyne
I've run a Lingotot franchise for a year now and it's such a wonderful way of teaching languages! It fit perfectly with the degree I'd studied. I actually have the opportunity to move out to Dubai with Lingotot which I'm very excited about!by Becki Hodgson, Lingotot Northumberland
Lingotot is such a supportive environment. Everything is provided for you, in terms of lesson plans, resources, marketing support and loads of free training and mentoring, which I did my research on, as you don't always get that. I've now expanded from 1 territory to 3 within 1 1/2 years and loving every minute.by Ashley Whitehead, Lingotot South Manchester
