Case Studies & Testimonials

Two Waters Primary School have been using Language Angels to teach French, for around two years. Prior to that, we were using 'bits and bobs' from 'here and there' and in some classes no French was being taught at all! All KS2 teachers now teach French lessons every week and there's even some teaching in KS1 too! Teachers and pupils love the scheme! Teachers, who had previously lacked confidence when delivering a language, now confidently teach the subject. Each lesson has been planned for them, including all of the required resources. The children (and teachers) can hear the vocabulary being pronounced by a French speaker at the click of a button! The games and worksheets have been enjoyed by all age groups. Many of the topics link to subjects being taught in the class, which certainly enhances our creative curriculum. Display material, linked to the topic, reinforces new language learnt and also assists visual learners. In addition to all of this, teachers now have end of unit assessments (self assessments and more formal), which it seems, will satisfy Ofsted criteria. Finally, Language Angels now provide a suggested timetable which shows which topics should be taught for each year group over each half term. This ensures that clear progression is achieved. On a last note, I must also mention the excellent and very prompt support provided by Paolo and Francesca. Thank you Language Angels!

Our children love the fun and interactive games on Language Angels, they particularly love the games where they have to beat the clock! The children listen to an authentic French speaker modelling the target language. Lesson worksheets are differentiated for most learners & every unit gives our children an opportunity to practise the 4 language learning skills. I am really enjoying teaching French with Language Angels.

Teachers are finding Language Angels a fantastic resource. It gives them confidence with pronunciation and lesson planning. The modules are well designed to match curriculum topics which helps to reinforce prior learning across subjects. Links to grammar are strengthened giving an added boost to the focus on English grammar in the new curriculum.

Language Angels has been a brilliant support for me as I was given the task of introducing Spanish across the whole of KS2 this academic year. The scheme Is ‘fool-proof’; each lesson is planned and resources explained step by step for teachers. Added to this, my students really enjoy the games and worksheets the scheme provides, and being able to log on with their individual logons at home means that parents can be involved in their learning too. Paolo and his team respond to questions and queries quickly and can’t do enough to help!

Language Angels supported our teachers who are not specialists in MFL and those who can't speak Spanish. They used the lesson plans to either follow or for ideas and the resources were very useful especially those with the sound buttons as they didn't feel embarrassed by having to speak a language they were not confident in to the children.

Language Angels is quick and easy to use, providing a great starting point for teachers who may be unfamiliar with a certain language. The resources are simple to navigate and use within the classroom. I've been using the French on Language Angels, it is easy to use and navigate around. The PowerPoint resources are bright and eye catching with really useful pictures to explain the words.The audio pronunciation is really clear and it can be repeated as many times as you like using the speaker symbol. This is very useful both in the class and when planning, so I can check my own pronunciation!

I have been using Language Angels to teach Spanish to children with special educational needs. I have used it to teach pupils aged between 8 and 14 with varying degrees of needs. I have been able to differentiate all the resources available for the language. The children have enjoyed the structure of the lessons and staff have also enjoyed learning the language.
The games for each topic are great for group work on the interactive whiteboard or for individual work on tables or computers. The end of the topic assessment was easy to complete and I was able to use this as my assessment evidence.

Earlier this year I was thrilled when our Head Teacher asked me if I would be interested in teaching Spanish to KS2. Learning Spanish is my hobby and I visit my house near Barcelona, as often as I can. However, moments after saying yes, the reality hit me. Where would I start? How good is my accent? I lead Nursery and Reception, I haven't taught KS2 for some years, how would I keep these older children engaged? Would this mean more hours of making games, props and work sheets? Then my Head explained he was considering buying in to 'Language Angels' and would I have a look at it and tell him my thoughts. This I did and I immediately realised what a brilliant resource he had discovered. I quickly emailed him saying 'Yes please!' and in September the children and I began our 'Language Angels' adventure. Right from the start we have all found it fun and engaging. I deliver lessons to a Y3/4 class and a Y5/6 class. Both classes started at the same entry point but it is fascinating to see how each lesson evolves differently, as we make full use of all the resources available. Everything is so easy to use: listening repeatedly, moving through the lessons, playing the interactive games. I have not needed to write lesson plans, to prepare any resources and have not needed to worry about my accent as the voice on the program is so clear. Everything I need is at my fingertips. However, as stated in the teacher's notes, there is plenty of opportunity for me to add in bits of my personal knowledge and although it is absolutely unnecessary, I have enjoyed adding in some little ideas of my own, like playing a bingo game about colours, after learning them through the program. At the end of the first unit the children used the assessment sheets. As we had some extra time we used the two options and the children reported that they really enjoyed doing both. All the children are very enthusiastic about our lessons and I hear them practising around school. They seek me out to ask what we'll be learning next and many are teaching their parents and siblings and bringing in books to support their learning. So .......... what more could you want but this easy-to-use, engaging, fun, hassle-free program. I thoroughly recommend it to all and thank you Paolo Pini for Language Angels.
