Case Studies & Testimonials

As a language specialist and subject leader I have been extremely impressed with the subscription package offered by Language Angels. The site has a comprehensive range of resources including power points with pronunciation guides, lesson plans and worksheets. It also has songs, interactive games and an assessment option to track how your students are doing. I find that it is equally suitable for language specialists and non-specialists alike and staff who are not so confident in teaching a language have told me that they love using it they can simply pick it up and use it in class.

Subject leaders will find a whole host of resources to support them in setting up their subject leader files, which I have found to be invaluable. Added to all this, there is fantastic, free CPD which is also offered and Francesca and Paolo are always on hand to offer advice and support if needed.

I strongly recommend subscribing!

I am so thankful for Language Angels! When I picked up MFL as my subject, I was new to subject leadership and was certainly not fluent in French, and felt very overwhelmed. Language Angels is not only a scheme of work, with fabulous lessons, but is also somewhere to turn for support. Paolo and Francesca have answered many an email, and questions during webinars, and they make time to assure you are comfortable and confident delivering MFL in school. I have found their webinars extremely useful, and even been able to share recordings with my colleagues, to improve their confidence in teaching MFL too.

As well as personal support, the website has as much information as you could ask for, with lesson breakdowns, curriculum overviews, progression maps, you name it! It has been a life saver for a less experienced teacher like myself, and I know that all my colleagues feel the same. Lots have mentioned how Language Angels has given them the confidence to teach a language, and the children love the lessons too! Not to mention that now we can access units from home too with the home learning webpage - I honestly do not know where I would be without Language Angels!

Thanks for your amazing resource. The teachers who have never taught French before absolutely love the lessons. They are positively buzzing. The children look forward to their lesson too. All the children at home are able to access the home learning and are doing great work. I copy the worksheet onto a Google Jamboard so that they can write on it and submit their work in Google Classroom. It's working well.

I am an MFL lead in a two-form entry Junior school in a small city location. Before Language Angels, French was taught throughout the school. However, some teachers lacked confidence when teaching the weekly lesson as they felt they did not have sufficient skills, expertise and appropriate resources to execute engaging and accurate lessons in French. Therefore the concern was that children would not be accessing best possible language teaching and learning.

Since signing up to Language Angels, this has all changed.

From the very outset Paolo and his team provided clear and simple instructions to get the school started on the site and all it has to offer. Any phone call or email sent to the team was dealt with promptly, patiently and efficiently. Nothing has been too much trouble for Paolo who has ensured that the school and myself as Language lead have all the information we need, in order to execute the lessons successfully.

The progression of skills is well laid out and it was particularly helpful to have a suggested yearly scheme of work for us to use as we got used to teaching the units. The selection of unit subjects is wide and can often be chosen to be relevant to the current class topic being taught.

The lessons are engaging for the children with great visuals on a PowerPoint and the ability to hear the language pronounced correctly and with consistent opportunities for the pupils to practice the vocabulary .
Exercises are very well differentiated to suit and challenge all abilities.

Each unit has a useful set of 'I can' steps for children to fill in as they progress through the unit. Each unit vocab sheet is invaluable as children are able to refer to it in their written, listening and spoken responses within each lesson. Children of course relish the interactive aspect of the site and have enjoyed singing, completing word searches and other fun activities available in each unit. The flash cards are handy as can be printed off and used as display to reinforce the current unit's vocabulary.

The assessment is clear and enables each class teacher to keep a close eye on how each child in their class is progressing. Teachers can feel confident that everything being taught is in line with National Curriculum guidelines.

The staff at school are now much more confident in delivering French lessons safe in the knowledge the lessons are tailored well to the children's ability while children look forward to their weekly French lessons. Their confidence in speaking, writing and listening to the language has significantly grown.

We are very impressed with Language Angels and our teachers are enthusiastic about the lessons. It's definitely value for money and so well aligned with Ofsted requirements. I and my shadow MFL leader completed your CPD training which we found extremely useful and shared many findings with our staff. We think that it's brilliant that children can have access to Language Angels from home too. I can't remember how many people I have recommended it to as I constantly do when anyone asks on teachers' blogs or groups. Thank you for all your help and continuous support.

Language Angels has proved very successful in teaching French and Spanish to KS1 and KS2. With engaging and well-structured lessons already planned, and progress easily demonstrated, Language Angels is a blessing for the busy teacher. I particularly appreciate the fact that as the children are listening to native speakers, they are able to reproduce the language authentically. Moreover, they eagerly participate in lessons, and particularly enjoy the games, songs and differentiated worksheets.

Thank you Paolo and Francesca for your unending support and encouragement. I wholeheartedly recommend Language Angels!

Our school has adopted Language Angels as a teaching aid for our key stage 2 pupils for the last few years. The benefits of this resource are as follows:

• children enjoy both listening and trying the verbal and practical activities
• enjoyment of a variety of resources: games, songs, visual cards for the classroom and practical written tasks encourage progression
• staff feel supported with teaching pronunciation if a non language specialist
• staff are guided by useful lesson plans
• subject leaders are supported with ideas, updates and webinars
• Language Angels is designed in line with DfE requirements hence progression within year groups and across the key stage

I have no hesitation in recommending this resource to help primary children enjoy and build their language skills.

I want to thank language Angels for their great resources and support. As a French coordinator with little language experience, Paolo and Francesca have made me more confident to deliver French not only to my own class but I can now support the staff in their language journey. Paolo and Francesca were brilliant at creating a bespoke 2 year rolling programme based on our mixed aged classes and also taking into account the children's previous French understanding. The staff and children are loving the weekly lessons.

Since we purchased the Language Angels programme, I have been delighted with both the programme itself and the costumer care. Previously we had an external Spanish specialist teaching MFL in our school, this stopped at the end of last year. A number of our staff expressed their concerns about delivering Spanish so it was important we purchased a scheme/programme which supported the teachers fully. Language Angels has been great at building the confidence in staff. All of the schemes are meticulously planned and supported fantastically by high quality resources. In the first term it has been great to hear staff speak confidently about their teaching of Spanish.

In terms of support from Language Angels, I cannot speak highly enough of the company. Historically Spanish had not been taught well in our school so most children irrespective of age were at the same point. I contacted the company and they creative a long term scheme bespoke to our school, which has helped immensely. Whenever I contact them I am struck by their friendly 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude. I have been delighted with our purchase and would highly recommend Language Angels to other schools.

We are in our third year of using language angels in school. Our KS2 children enjoy participating in the lessons and often ask if they can do French on the days it’s not timetabled! The lessons are interactive and a great way for the children to show off what they’ve learnt. There is lots of help for teachers that are not confident teaching French and teacher notes for every lesson to go with the PowerPoints. The assessments and tracking tools are great for us as school to see where our children are at and the progress they have made throughout the units. CPD training ha also been great and nothing is too much trouble for Paolo and Francesca, they’re always at the of an email or the phone should you require extra support. I would highly recommend Language Angels
