Case Studies & Testimonials

We have been using Language Angels for about seven years now and it has transformed our French lessons. My non-specialist KS2 colleagues who teach French to their own class love it because it provides all the resources needed for a lesson, including pronunciation by a native French speaker, which a lot of teachers worry about. I love it because of all the materials and support it gives me as a subject leader, including the excellent, free webinars. Paolo, Francesca and Virginie are all very approachable and easy to speak to if we have a question, and they respond promptly. A brilliant resource which I would definitely recommend.

I highly recommend Language Angels. As a Spanish native speaker and linguist, I have used Language Angels for over 5 years to support my Spanish teaching, French teaching (non-speaker) and my role as MFL subject leader in different primary schools.

The Language Angels’ teaching tools are accessible to all - no matter the teacher’s level of competence in the foreign language – making the teaching and learning of a MFL fun and enjoyable for everyone. I also find their training webinars an excellent opportunity to share current practice with colleagues across the country and their specialist language team, as well as to keep up-to-date with new developments.

Language Angels provides everything teachers and leaders need to deliver a quality MFL curriculum.

I have been using Language Angels for just over a year now and I really enjoy using your resources. My school first subscribed during lockdown, as your home learning resources enabled us to continue to teach Spanish to a good standard while children were at home. I find that the children engage well with the presentations and enjoy playing the games. It is also really useful to have the differentiated worksheets as this saves a huge amount of time preparing my own. I particularly like teaching the cross curricular topics, and have found that the Planets topic is extremely popular with our year five children.

I am fluent in Spanish and currently teach all the Spanish lessons myself , but when I am unable to teach other staff have found it simple to use the resources, especially the sound files, and I am confident that lessons are delivered competently by staff who have little or no knowledge of the language. The teacher support sheets are very clear and easy to follow.

The training webinars that you offer are extremely useful. I have only missed a couple of them since the school subscribed to Language Angels, and they have formed a large part of my professional development as Spanish Subject Leader.

Thank you – keep up the good work!

Language Angels has been a very welcome resource for our school to help support our teachers when teaching and delivering our languages curriculum. The children have also expressed how enjoyable the resource is to learn from and how the sound buttons help with the speaking and listening elements of the lessons.

We are loving your new Pupil Learning Intention Summary Sheets and Pupil Vocabulary Lists. The Pupil Learning Intention sheets are proving really useful to help inform teacher assessments and pupils are able to refer back to their vocabulary lists in their weekly French lessons. This helps to embed vocabulary and improve independence when using previously taught vocabulary.

Language Angels is packed with excellent resources and easy to follow lesson plans. As subject leader, I am confident that our curriculum follows well-structured progression and children are building on skills and experience year after year to expand their abilities in all four areas of learning (listening, speaking, reading and writing). Teachers who are less confident in teaching a foreign language enjoy the support of native language audio clips on every lesson PowerPoint. I highly recommend the songs too which really help embed the language in a playful way. I truly believe that pupils leave Christ Church thoroughly prepared for a career in language learning at secondary school.

We have just changed our language taught in our school to French and were looking for a scheme that would offer not only the resources needed, but also CPD opportunities as we have no French speaking teachers. Language Angels has been amazing!

The resources are provided for every lesson, along with the tools to enable the children and teachers to hear how the words and phrases should be pronounced correctly. This has given us a firm grounding to build the foundations of our foreign languages curriculum. Paolo and Francesca are also on hand to assist with any questions or help if needed.

We highly recommend Language Angels and would also recommend following their social media sites too as we have found them to be a very valuable resource.

I think that Language Angels is simply brilliant! Everything that is needed for teaching MFL in a school is provided and the whole scheme has been thought out and very carefully considered. It is perfect for specialist and non- specialist teachers alike. Planning, differentiated resources, assessment and recording progress tools are all provided. It takes a lot of pressure off of teachers and language leaders. The CPD provided is excellent and tailored to your school. Paolo and Francesca are there to help in any way they can! I would totally recommend! I’m so grateful to have found Language Angels!

Having studied languages myself at University, I am very selective about the materials that I share with colleagues at my school. Language Angels has been a fantastic resource to share school-wide to support non-specialist teachers with the delivery of MFL. The teachers feel much more confident in planning and delivering lessons and appreciate the sound clips and differentiated resources. The children love the online game platform and from a subject coordinator point of view, the progress documents and overviews are brilliant. I have also always appreciated the hands-on approach from Language Angels with CPD. No question is too big and they are always willing to offer bespoke support. I would recommend to anyone!

Our staff and children enjoy using Language angels to learn Spanish. The sequences build on prior learning and are colourful and interactive which the children love. Our Year 3s, learning Spanish for the first time, have found the activities engaging and useful to help remember new words and phrases. The teachers (some also learning Spanish for the first time!) have found the pronunciation sound clips particularly useful.
