South Dublin Lingotot Centre

Welcome to Lingotot South Dublin !

My name is Sofia and am thrilled to bring Lingotot to Dublin and share a love for languages with local children and their families.  Languages have always been a huge part of my life.  With Spanish and German parents, I was very fortunate to grow up in a trilingual household. After a long stint in the corporate world abroad and 3 young children of my own, I decided to re-direct my career to allow me to work part time and locally in something I love. I am passionate about teaching children a life skill and making language-learning fun for kids in preparation for secondary school and life ! 

Lingotot South Dublin teaches languages in primary schools, pre-schools and community venues.  We also offer fun mulitactivity language camps over the October mid-term and the Easter and Summer holidays.

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 realising they’re doing so.  Our aim is to give children a positive association with languages early on in their lives.  They gain in confidence and the older class group attain a solid base to take with them into secondary school.

I'm delighted to have Spanish natives and certified tutors Barbara Bravo and Blanca Garcia-Bouza as part of the Lingotot team.

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

Lessons are well-planned, creative, interactive & engaging

My 10 year old daughter has been attending Spanish lessons with Sofia in Lingotot for 2 years and she loves them! The lessons (both in person and virtual) are really well-planned, creative, interactive and engaging. My daughter has so much fun she doesn't even realise she's learning. I would definitely recommend learning Spanish with Sofia. Not only is she a fantastic teacher but as a Spanish native she has taught my daughter lots about Spanish culture & customs.

Confidence speaking Spanish

My kids have loved every session of Lingotot and delighted with their confidence in speaking Spanish after only a few terms. The classes are fun and so well prepared. Thank you Sofia and team, we look forward to returning in September.

Language Learning made fun !

My son has attended Lingotot with Sofia for several years and thoroughly enjoys each and every class. Sofia is incredible with the kids, fun and patient and makes learning a new language an enjoyable experience. Highly recommend

Spanish Summer Camp 2021

Highly recommend Lingotot South Dublin. My 5 year old son loved his week of Spanish Summer Camp. He was super excited to go everyday, loved learning a new language and particularly enjoyed all the craft. Sofia looked after him really well and was super responsive and friendly in her communication. Thank you Sofia, we will be back!

Themes are appropriate to the age groups

Sofia knows her target age group and is amazing at keeping them interested and engaged. My 5yo son has done online Spanish classes with Sofia and he is fully involved for the duration of the class, no lapse of concentration, complaining of boredom or wandering around, as happens even with videocalls with his beloved granny! She chooses themes appropriate to the group and covers relevant vocab in a fun and interactive way. And this must be considerably more difficult online than in person. Highly recommend.

The class is engaging, fun and age appropriate

Both of my daughters attend Lingotot. They love the singing, crafts, games and their teacher Sofia. The class is engaging, fun and age appropriate. We look forward to it every week!

Teaching through songs, play & stories

Sofia is an amazing teacher, very engaging and fun. By teaching through songs, play and stories, she has kept us sane during the lockdown with her brilliant online classes!

Spanish community class feedback

Thanks so much- Alice loves her Lingotot lessons, singing and listening to stories in Spanish- Ricitos de Oro y los Tres Osos is her favourite . She is only upset when the classes are over !  

Helen

Past Lingotot student feedback

Attending Lingotot classes in primary school gave my daughter confidence and she felt that she had all the basics when she started secondary school. It also meant that she wanted to choose Spanish when she went into her first year as she really enjoyed it !

Emma

Fun and engaging sessions..

I’ve just signed the girls up for the new term. They both absolutely love the classes and I’m very impresssed how much they are learning.  They really, really enjoy it - it sounds fun and engaging.  We’re so happy you’re offering Lingotot lessons in our school and hope you will continue offering them for the years to come.
