Bexley resident and mum of two Sarah Canavan is bringing a variety of language classes to the borough.

She said: “I am very proud to be bringing specialist language teaching to Bexley.

“I teach children as young as two months old in community classes, to 11 year olds in schools, and currently offer French, German and Spanish, with a view to expanding to Mandarin and Arabic long term.”

Sarah enjoyed a successful career in banking but after the birth of her second child, wanted something that combined her passion for languages with the flexibility needed for family life.

She added: “I am incredibly passionate about my own children learning languages and about different cultures, especially in our vibrant and culturally diverse borough.

“My aim is to engage our community in the joy of language learning at a young age, offering children the opportunity to expand their world.

“Learning a second language as a child offers so many benefits and studies show it can give them a headstart with problem solving and creative thinking amongst other skills.”

Lingotot is a multi-award winning languages programme being delivered to over 12,000 children across the UK each week.

Their interactive learning format aims to introduce pre-school and primary age children to languages such as French, Spanish, German, Mandarin Chinese, English as a second language and even Arabi.

They deliver their classes through community groups, nursery school language classes, MFL PPA teaching in primary schools, after school language clubs, foreign language drama classes, and more.

Sarah said: “We believe in making languages fun and interactive, rather than the stuffy ‘talk and chalk’ style which we all experienced in our own childhoods”.

Lingotot Bexley launches on Saturday, April 7 at 10am with an egg-citing Easter event at East Wickham Primary Academy, Welling.
