I am yet to introduce the programme to my school, but it has already helped my planning as a subject leader. I have created a folder for each year group which includes many of the excellent features from Language Angels. I find it very helpful for the term by term teaching; it correlates very well with what is expected from the DfE.

Myself and the children love our Language Angels sessions. We enjoy all aspects of the programme and the children are progressing well. I find it very easy to use and follow with the tests at the end of each 6 week session helpful in assessing how the children are doing.
I am always keen to recommend the Language Angels programme to other teachers and schools.
Thank you so much for making learning a new language such a pleasurable experience for teacher and pupils alike.

Our Federation of schools and the teachers within these schools have found Language Angels an easy programme to use. We have utilised the assessment feature which compiles all of our contextual data. Not being native French speakers, our teachers have found the programme easy to use and follow. The end of year and unit objectives are clearly set out and enable us to see where the pupils are headed. We would recommend this programme to other schools.

Language Angels is an incredible resource to use in teaching MFL. At Summerside it has been an excellent support for teachers, with easy to follow plans ready to use, fantastic resources which include PowerPoints with sound buttons, games and activities, and wonderful assessment tasks at the end of each unit of work. Units cover a wide range of interesting topics, many of which are perfect for cross-curricular work. Grammar is well covered too, and there are opportunities throughout to tie in the language learning with SPaG, consolidating these skills in both English and in French / Spanish. The children love the lessons and the teachers have grown enormously in confidence.

Good resources. Brilliant assessment. Kids are really enjoying the grammar i.e. verbs. Flashcards would be a bonus, as well as game ideas to play in classroom. Thank you for a great resource. Very pleased with it. Language Angels is easy to use and offers a wide range of activities. Children love the interactive games. Whenever help is needed, the team is very quick to respond and gives clear and thorough answers. Thank you Language Angels!

Being a French speaker, teaching French isn't a problem, however teaching Spanish was a concern for me as I do not know the language. After having used Language Angels, I've received a real confidence boost in teaching Spanish and have found the slides, instructions and resources really helpful. In honesty, I've only used one unit (at an Intermediate level as my learners have some basic understanding, the unit "all about me") - though I've started to look at the unit about family and feel that the songs and resources provided will give me the support I need. The website is easy to use, access and navigate and so far, I cannot fault the content.

We have only been using the Language Angels resources for a short period of time, and everyone has been very impressed with the quality of the materials, the level of detail within plans and supporting documents, and the wide range of resources available. The children have thoroughly enjoyed their lessons and activities, and the love of language learning has certainly started to develop amongst the classes! Also, the support provided by Paolo and the team has been excellent - help is only ever an email away!

Thank you for your continually, updated and improved resources which make MFL so much easier to deliver, for both experienced and non- language specialists, without hours of extra planning or stress. Thank you to for responding so promptly and enthusiastically every time that we have asked for additional resources, like flash cards and songs, to support our language learning. The addition of assessment materials is useful and the programmes allow lots of flexibility and options about delivery to make it possible to fit well with class teachers creative curriculum topics too. The children are so amazed at how quickly they can begin to understand, speak, read and write the information and love to link French learning with other subject learning like the planets. It increases their interest and self-esteem and reinforces their understanding and learning in these areas too.

I am new to Language Angels and started using it this year as MFL co coordinator for our school; I have found it to be a fantastic scheme that provides teachers with structured lesson plans, PowerPoints, activities and assessment for a variety of topics ranging from core vocabulary to much more advanced content.
The website and resources are extremely easy to navigate and provide a very clear progression as you move through the lessons and the topics. As well as this, and most importantly, the children love it! They are engaged and motivated in their language learning and look forward to the next lesson. I have spoken with staff and children throughout our school and have heard nothing but praise for Language Angels and the resources provided. I would highly recommend Language Angels for any school and can't thank them enough for all of their wonderful work!

I love using Language Angels as do my colleagues in KS1.
Language Angels provides you with fun, interactive and easy to use resources that the kids really enjoy. It also gives you great tips on how to teach it and what to focus on in each session, a must-have if you are new to language teaching. This is combined with the tracking and assessment resources to give you confidence that you are meeting the new curriculum objectives. We love it.
