Lingotot is proud to teach their multi award-winning language classes to thousands of children each and every week. Until lockdown, classes were always conducted inside the classroom using their fun and interactive methodology, however when schools closed, the lessons quickly moved online.
This has not stopped new franchisees from launching their Lingotot business. Franchisee Layla Riches mangaed to launch her new business during the 2nd month of lockdown.
The Lingotot method makes use of active, communicative and interactive teaching methods which come naturally to young learners. Learning is through songs, stories, games, drama and play.
When you join the Lingotot family you enter a friendly and professional network from a range of different backgrounds who all share a common purpose: Making language learning child’s play.
Lingotot first started to franchise in 2011 with the launch of its first pilot units. The company released franchises UK wide in 2012 and now boasts a network of over 50 franchisees which directly employ a further 80 teachers. As a Lingotot Business owner you can benefit from:
Choose your own languages, classes, work patterns and even if you want to teach at all! - Mornings can include classes in the community or nurseries.

I love being part of the Lingotot family. I started as a tutor then I couldn’t help myself but to buy not 1 but 2 territories to form Lingotot Bexley. I love my job as a Lingotot franchisee as I can make my own destiny, choose my hours, choose schools and nurseries and areas I want to target and take real ownership of my career.Sarah Canavan
I've been a franchisee since May 2018, and I couldn't be happier. After a long stint in the corporate world, followed by a career break to raise a family, I've finally found a fulfilling role for myself, doing something I absolutely love, and which really does work around family life - rather than just claiming to.Sofia Colás
