Lingotot Says ¡Fantástico! to Princess Charlotte

Posted: Mon, Jan 15, 2018 9:42 PM

Founder of children’s language business Lingotot praises Princess Charlotte and says a big ¡Fantástico! for her progress in Spanish.

Lingotot delivers pre-school and primary school aged children across the UK and founder, Angela Sterling, was delighted to hear the news that Princess Charlotte already knows some words in Spanish. 

The two-year-old, who started nursery this week, has picked up the language thanks to her Palencia-born nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo. She is reported to be "very sweet and very confident – she's always chatting away".

The royal tots join a growing number of youngsters learning a second language, including  Sam Faier’s son Paul who learns Spanish after appearing on ITV Be series the Mummy Diaries with Lingotot.

Up and down the country Lingotot teaches over 12,000 children aged 0-11 each week to speak a range of modern foreign languages including French, Spanish, German, Arabic and Mandarin.

Angela comments: “I am delighted to hear that Princess Charlotte is learning a second language at such a young age with the help of her Spanish nanny. Research suggests that children who know two languages can gain an academic advantage over those who speak only one. Linguist experts say that between birth and five years of age, the human brain is hard-wired for learning multiple languages and after this age it becomes much harder.”

She continues: “At Lingotot we understand that not everyone has the resources to hire a nanny and in our lessons we teach the parents too, giving them top tips on how to use the language at home every day. We share our multilingual songs, stories and games with the whole family. 

Everyone at Lingotot you to come and try a Lingotot class for free. Simply visit, select your location your little one will be saying 'uno, dos, tres' before you know it!

    Both my children enjoy Lingotots and i like the unique opportunity it provides to learn language through play and songs. The group has a good mix of activities including craft and snacks. Highly recommended and good enough for royalty!
