With lockdown restrictions likely to tighten and relax over the coming months, it is a stark reality that large numbers of people are unsure of what the future holds for them, with many still unable to go back to work.
These uncertain times are also seen by many as an opportunity to launch new ventures, make that career U-turn, retrain in a different industry or just re-evaluate their life-work- family balance.
Lingotot is an established and successful children's language business. They are proud to teach their multi award-winning language classes to thousands of children each and every week.
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.
The demand for children’s activities continues to grow as many parents and carers don’t have the knowledge and confidence to provide language learning activities at home.
With foreign languages now compulsory in English primary schools and soon to follow in Scotland and Wales, more and more parents will want to give their children a head start.
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.
Lingotot franchisees teach Lingotot's multi award-winning language classes to thousands of children each and every week.

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
