Next Steps

You can operate a Lingotot franchise whether you are fluent or don't speak a word!

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 are invested in your success as the brand is very close to our hearts and your success is our success. We genuinely call ourselves The Lingotot Family!

What are the Requirements to become a Franchisee?

The main requirement for becoming a Lingotot Business owner is that you have a passion for teaching children languages, they focus more on recruiting the right people rather than those with specific skills or experience.

  • Being multilingual is an advantage but not a requirement, if your language skills are a bit rusty, we have a LingoBoost programme to polish them up. Some of their franchisees do not speak any other languages themselves and rely on tutors to teach the lessons.
  • Previous teaching experience is an advantage but not required. We provide accredited teacher training.
  • No previous business experience required; they provide full support.
