West Limerick Lingotot Centre
Welcome to Lingotot West Limerick
My name is Desirée and I am delighted to bring Lingotot to Limerick and share my love for languages with local children and their families.
I was born in Brazil in a small town, my parents always encouraged me to study another language and since I was a little girl I loved my English classes at school and I spent hours in front of the mirror talking to myself in English.
I came to Ireland in 2018 to improve my English to do my Ph.D. in Pharmacy and then I made a beautiful family here. I am the mother of a little boy who is growing up with 3 languages (English, Portuguese, and Spanish) at home. After I became a mother I decided to re-direct my career to allow me to work part-time in something I love. I am passionate about teaching languages to children as a life skill and making language-learning fun for kids in preparation for secondary school and life!
Lingotot West Limerick teaches languages online as well as 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’re doing so.
I'm delighted to have Spanish native and certified tutor Paloma Valencia Castro 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.

Teaching through songs, play & stories
"...Adam is new to learning a second language and he absolutely loved it. He is saying Buenas Noches for the past hour and playing cucú.
The reason Adam enjoyed the class so much was without a doubt because of Paloma. The way she entertained them through singing, games, and positive encouragement was fabulous. The pace of the class was great and she included all the children equally. I have to praise her very highly. "
