What is it like starting a new business in lockdown?

Amy Rowsell founded Lingotot South Staffordshire in March of 2020, just as schools across the country closed for the first time. Launching any business during a national lockdown will have its complications, however Amy not only established her successful business, but expanded it within the year.

Lingotot Franchise | children's languages businessLingotot classes usually operate predominantly in schools, nurseries and communities across the UK, but with the first national lockdown came the closure of these sites.

The Lingotot franchise reacted swiftly and moved online, but what was it like to join them and start a business whilst these changes were taking place?

This is where Lingotot South Staffordshire’s foundation proves that adverse and unfamiliar circumstances do not always result in a lack of success.

From day one, Lingotot South Staffordshire was fully equipped and ready to go with online classes. Once some parents and schools had the pleasure of attending Amy's classes, Lingotot South Staffordshire began to grow. The business has since flourished and most recently signed two new contracts with different schools. Because of the increased demand for their fabulous online classes, they have expanded their network and welcomed a new tutor, Aaron Worton.

Amy had this to say, “I am so excited to be welcoming Aaron to Lingotot South Staffordshire. We are really busy with classes and providing recorded lessons for schools during lockdown and it’s so exciting to be able to expand the team.

The addition of Aaron also means we can offer even more classes and lessons in more languages. My mum is already excited about learning Italian and my 8 year old son, Charlie is much more impressed with Aaron speaking 3 languages than is with me!”

What Our Franchisees Say

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


I have been a franchisee of Lingotot for since 2012. My business has gone from strength to strength and we now teach in lots of schools and nurseries as well as running community classes. I have 4 tutors who work for me who also love their jobs. If you are thinking of a language teaching franchise you can’t go wrong by choosing Lingotot.Abigail Curtis
