Hello everyone, welcome to Lingotot East Limerick!
My name is Sophie and I am so excited to be bringing Lingotot classes to the east areas of Limerick. I think learning a second language is truly a gift to our children and I am delighted to be able to share that gift with you all.
My own journey with languages began when I took up French in secondary school, it quickly became my favourite subject as I fell in love with the language and realised the opportunities it could bring. I then decided to continue my language journey in University and I did a degree in Applied Languages in the University of Limerick with French, Spanish and Japanese. I did a work placement in Japan teaching English to children, which is where I discovered my love for teaching and children's education. Ultimately I decided to focus my attentions on French and Spanish. I then spent a summer in the north of Spain living with a family, I helped their children with English, while they helped me with my Spanish.
After finishing university, I had my little boy, who is now almost two. Now being a mum, and looking to start a career, I knew I wanted to maximise time with my son while also having a job that I am passionate about. I was overjoyed to discover lingotot, which allows me to work part time doing something that I love.
My only regret about my own languages journey is that I didn't start it earlier and that opportunity is what I want to give to my students.
