Case Studies & Testimonials

MFL is a tricky subject to co-ordinate as many people do not see themselves as natural speakers of foreign languages. This then translates into their confidence in teaching the subject.

Language Angels has given us the platform to deliver French in a fun and engaging way, which is easy for teachers to navigate and deliver. The voice notes are so handy - many adults in the classroom feel as though they are learning too!

The webinars have offered insightful ideas and have also helped to deliver best practice.

We are relatively new to Language Angels but as MFL lead, I can already see the benefits.

Zero to Hero Language Teaching Using Language Angels

We have bought in Language Angels to ensure an organised and well-planned curriculum offer in Key stage 2 for Modern Foreign Languages focusing on French.

We had very little French teaching taking place before we bought in these resources. We are a small rural school and subject leaders co-ordinate more than on subject area and are very stretched. Language Angels is a good value resource, with a long and meaningful trail period to ensure the programme and resources met our needs.

At Queenswell Junior School we have found Language Angels to be an invaluable teaching resource. The children love the interactive PowerPoints, games and songs. For the staff who have no prior knowledge of the language, it has given them the confidence to teach Spanish successfully. All the units have lesson plans, learning objectives and vocabulary lists. The speaker icons on the PowerPoints ensure that the words are pronounced correctly. The grammar is clearly explained. The units become increasingly challenging as you move through the learning stages ensuring progression across the school. Thank you Language Angels!

Language Angels offer exceptional customer service and support. Leading two very different schools: one 2-form entry and one very small school with only 50 pupils in total, we needed a completely bespoke approach for each school and many staff were concerned about delivering MFL for the first time. However, all of our concerns and queries were soon allayed, with expert support provided in relation to developing a rolling programme and implementation plan matched to their individual needs. The children are now a full half term in and are absolutely loving Spanish. Our staff are also confident in their delivery due to the excellent resources and training that come with being part of the Language Angels family. Thank you Paolo & the team!

I couldn't be more impressed with Language Angels who certainly live up to their name. We came from a position of not having taught MFL for a number of years, no staff skills/ confidence, and struggling to work out how to start teaching MFL and make a plan for meaningful progression. After inquiring, I received a bespoke unit progression plan from Francesca the very next day, which was super impressive, and the support has continued to go above and beyond my expectations ever since. The children are absolutely loving learning French and teachers are now empowered, through the comprehensive resources, to develop their own skills and are no longer traumatised at the thought of teaching languages!

We have been using Language Angels for 4 years now and it is firmly embedded. We have used the schemes to map out our curriculum and have linked it to the other subjects/units taught in school. Thanks to Language Angels we have a progressive curriculum which enables all pupils to succeed. The units of work are engaging and our pupils love learning Spanish. They are making great progress and our Year 6 pupils are able to read and write effectively. When they leave us, their enthusiasm for languages goes with them! It has also made a huge difference to the confidence of the staff teaching Spanish because none of them are language specialists yet they are well supported to teach it. They are guided with pronunciation and know that the children are learning it correctly. They teach Spanish with enthusiasm and you can see that throughout school when they say, "Hola, que tal?" When they pass me! A very effective resource that we do not want to be without!

I would highly recommend Language Angels as a comprehensive scheme of work. The progressive lessons are an enjoyable learning experience for the children incorporating a range of learning techniques. We have non-specialist teachers in our school who initially lacked confidence in teaching French, however the scheme helped them to overcome this. As a subject leader I find the curriculum guidance very useful as all policies and supporting documents are available. The assessment tracker tool is easy to use and there are clear reports which are useful for monitoring.

Language Angels gives us the backbone of our curriculum which means we, as busy teachers, have been able to spend more time focusing on adapting individual lessons to suit our children. We can choose the most appropriate resources from a wide range which cover all the main skills of speaking/listening/reading/writing. The resources are consistent, engaging and we acknowledge how much progress our children make using the Language Angels programme.

As the subject leader, the knowledge organisers, curriculum sequencing and assessment guidance helps me to know we are doing a good job of delivering a good quality MFL education to our children. Please keep up the additional pupil games, cultural event games and home learning resources. These are the bits the children love the most!

LA has really helped our staff get a feel for the language they are teaching. The visuals and the activities make learning fun for the children and enable them to learn the correct sounds, pronunciation and grammar. We couldn't teach accurately without it.
