Drogheda & East Meath Lingotot Centre

Welcome to Lingotot Drogheda/East Meath!

My name is Elena Calavia and I am delighted to bring Lingotot to Drogheda/ East Meath, sharing my passion for language education with children and their parents.

Growing in a multilingual household in Spain I was very fortunate to be able learn French, in addition to my native Spanish, from a very young age so I know first - hand the benefits early exposure to modern languages brings to children.

After a long career in the legal profession I decided to go back to my first love of languages (as I am also qualified to teach), setting up Lingotot Drogheda/ East Meath in 2021.

Lingotot Drogheda/ East Meath teaches Spanish and French in primary schools, pre-schools, and community venues. Our award-winning Lingotot language classes are fun and interactive with songs, games, stories, and crafts all designed to help children learn naturally, without them even realizing they are doing so. During the Halloween, Easter and Summer school holidays we also offer exciting camps with a mixture of outdoor and indoor fun activities like treasure hunts and forest school activities while learning the target language. 

We also partner with several primary schools in the Louth and Meath area, delivering the Department of Education " Say Yes to languages" modern language module and have exciting plans for expansion to deliver languages as an after school activity in primary schools.

If you would like us to contact your child's school or preschool directly to offer language classes, we'd love to hear from you also.

Lastly, parents are also invited to join us in fun conversational beginners classes over a coffee or glass of wine, whatever you prefer depending on the time of the day!

Muchas gracias.

Elena & team.

Testimonials

  • From parents

Testimonial from parent with Spanish and Irish heritage attending Spanish classes

My child is 7 years old and is half Spanish and half Irish. I have been trying to teach him to speak Spanish at home unsuccessfully because he was not interested at all. The thing is, one can not help feeling the pressure from the family abroad and their disappointment when your son does not speak your native language. I heard about Elena's Spanish classes and I gave it a go. And what a change it made! He really loves going to his Spanish classes and more importantly he is happy there. He gained so much confidence speaking and writing in Spanish. Now we share what he has learned in class and have little conversations at home. I highly recommend Elena and her Spanish classes.

My girls aged 4 and 2 loved their French Parent and Toddler classes. Elena was so relaxed and made the learning fun. My 4 year old has ASD diagnosis and Elena engaged her so well! She still asks when she is going back to" Bonjour"!
