Case Studies & Testimonials

The home-schooling programme that ‘language angels’ has provided has meant that the children at our school have not lost any learning time with their French. They are all enjoying accessing the materials from home and continue to make good progress with their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.

I have introduced Language Angels now in 3 different primary schools and in each case, the confidence of the teachers (non specialist) has increased in terms of their ability to correctly deliver French in all year groups in a progressive manner. Over the years, LA has continued to develop their offering to meet changing school requirements and has moved to offer a proper remote schooling offer that has meant minimal interruption to language acquisition. I particularly appreciated the high level CPD that is free and resources made available for wider staff training. Finally, the response from the whole Language Angels team is always professional, helpful, tailored and speedy!

Language Angels is a well-structured and engaging programme designed to support teachers delivering modern foreign language lessons following the languages programme of study in the national curriculum in primary schools. I have found the ‘Tracking and Progression Tool’ a simple and useful way of keeping a record for monitoring the children’s progress across year groups and the CPD webinars offered throughout the academic year to subscribers are always informative and most enjoyable. I'd like to thank Paolo and Francesca and all the team at Language Angels for their continued support.

Language Angels has been excellent for our school, especially for those non-specialist colleagues who are worried about pronunciation, as the PPT for each lesson does it all for you. The package provides excellent resources for teachers, and useful documents, CPD and support for me as subject leader. Their remote learning programme has been fantastic and very well received by colleagues and children.
Paolo is very approachable and prompt to reply if ever I have a question. I would thoroughly recommend Language Angels.

I would highly recommend Language Angels for use in school. I came across Language Angels when I did one of their online CPD webinars during the first lockdown which was invaluable. As I had recently taken over leading MFL in the primary school that I work in, I must admit that I did feel a bit lost as to where to start and on how to promote progression (and what that would look like) but Language Angels provided clear guidance on how to teach Primary MFL.

As a school we have since signed up to Language Angels and feedback from the teachers has been great and the pupils love learning Spanish in their classes. We have also used the home learning platform so that children can still access their topics from home in lockdown. Overall, the 'presence' of languages has increased in our school which is fantastic.

It is simple to navigate the site, having all the things we need in one place. Also, the fact that there is already planning and differentiated worksheets, help with the teacher workload and direction for taking creative/interactive routes for activities. Most of all, the embedded audio files have boosted teachers confidence in teaching French.

I would like to begin by saying thank you to Language Angels for all of their hard work and dedication to languages and the scheme of work that they have produced.

I cannot recommend this scheme enough to all teachers, teaching assistants whether you are a specialist or non-specialist this scheme will change the way you approach language teaching in your school. I have taught Primary Spanish for over ten years and followed varying schemes, as a specialist and fluent speaker, this scheme from Language Angels is by far the most efficient scheme to follow and to teach from. As the MFL subject lead for my school I have been responsible for introducing Spanish into our school and it was easily achieved with the Language Angels scheme. I am the only fluent speaker, as all my other colleagues are non-specialists but they have found the scheme easy to navigate around and are reassured by the sound buttons which aid their pronunciation. As one of my colleagues stated in her staff voice survey recently,

“I absolutely love the scheme, so easy to use and I am learning along with the children how to pronounce vocabulary correctly!”

Recently, I attended the webinar from Language Angels with a focus on grammar and I was inspired and motivated but also reassured that within school we are covering the National Curriculum requirements for language teaching by using the Language Angels scheme. It was wonderful to understand in more depth how the grammar is interwoven into the scheme without having to concern myself if all the year groups are covering the requirements.

I especially like the tracking and monitoring of the scheme as it allows me as a subject lead to be able to monitor Spanish and know how well the children are progressing within each year group. Everything that you need is within this scheme, every language teacher should be using this scheme and I cannot thank Language Angels enough for the support that they give too. I am fully supported by Paolo and Francesca and the Language Angels team anytime, any day! They are true angels, thank you so much!

I am the MFL lead at a Primary school in Hull and we have been using the Language Angels scheme to teach French for 3 months now. As we are a 1.5 form entry school and have many mixed year group classes, we needed a scheme which would cater well to this. Paolo and Francesca were both extremely helpful when applying for the scheme and put together a personalised long term plan for our school. This plan ensured that children would not repeat any units.

Units are organised into ‘Teaching Type’ rather than by year group. Each ‘Teaching Type’ represents a different level of challenge which makes it easier and clearer for teachers to choose the most appropriate units for each of their classes.

The resources provided by Language Angels also make teaching each unit a lot easier. There are lesson plans, presentations with sound files, differentiated worksheets, songs and assessment materials.

Children have been extremely engaged in lessons and feedback from teachers throughout KS2 has shown that those who are new to teaching French, feel more confident in doing so. I can definitely say that introducing the scheme has had a positive impact on the quality of teaching and learning within our school.

Thank you Language Angels.

I am the MFL subject lead for my Primary school and a non-language teacher. When I was given the role as subject lead I felt really overwhelmed as I had no experience in how to teach languages or where to start with the subject.

I signed up for the free trial of Language Angels and couldn’t believe how easy it was to use. Language Angels has been fantastic with the support, resources and CPD training they have offered. I emailed them about CPD for the other teachers in the school and they were more than happy to help and sent videos for me to share with the staff.

The site is easy to use and all the staff in my school have said that they are really more confident when teaching the lesson. The team are also great with communication and always so quick to reply if I have any issues.

I am very much enjoying using the Language Angels programme and the children are enjoying the lessons too. I have also enjoyed getting to grips with all of the different elements that you have to offer and things that I would still like to explore further.
