Language Angels has lifted the quality of our French lessons. The teachers find it easy to navigate and the children love it. The songs are catchy and fun and the progression of skills and vocabulary is clear.

Language Angels has been an amazing source of support for myself as MFL lead as well as the class teachers delivering French. It has enabled me to empower non specialists at my school to teach French with confidence. As a subject leader, I have found the guidance available on the website extremely comprehensive for curriculum planning and monitoring and the wonderful team at Language Angels also go out of their way to answer questions and provide support over email. Thank you Language Angels!

We have used Language Angels to support our French learning at Key Stage 2 for several years. The units are varied, relevant, engaging and user friendly. There is a wealth of material to dip into. During Lockdown, the Language Angels Team set up a home learning website, as part of the school subscription, which parents and families could access. This was a wonderful addition which supported remote learning. The team offers webinars and responds to queries regarding content in a timely fashion. The resources are reviewed and updated regularly. The cross curricular content is well resourced. This has been a bonus when trying to create a bespoke language curriculum. Overall, a great resource which reflects its creators passion for engaging young language learners.

Having worked in primary schools for 13 years, MFL is usually one of the most neglected subjects. Whether this is due to a lack of specialist expertise, language learning not being a priority or the eternal struggle to find time in the curriculum. I’ve found that Language Angels is a truly comprehensive system that provides teachers all the resources they need at the click of a button to develop a quality MFL lesson. Children love the simplicity and ability to reflect and build on previous learning as well as the games at home. Would wholeheartedly recommend.

Our school has been fortunate to benefit from our subscription to Language Angels for a number of years now. Prior to signing up, we found that teachers in our school lacked confidence in teaching MFL and that children were unenthused by the prospect of learning languages. Since signing up we have seen a significant improvement in teaching and learning. Both teachers and Learning Support Assistants feel confident to teach MFL due to the support and range of resources that Language Angels provides. We also find that the children now love their MFL lessons due to the fun visuals and resources provided.

Language Angels is a fantastic resource - enabling confident and non-French speakers alike to deliver interesting and engaging lessons to the children. There is a great variety of differentiated activities, games, songs and more to choose from in each unit meaning an end to searching for resources (with support and challenge). One of the aspects that I like the most, is the confidence that Paolo, Francesca and the Language Angels approach gives me as MFL Subject Leader. They provide tracking tools, subject leader advice and all the resources that you require to show that you are providing a systematic and progressive approach to modern languages teaching. CPD sessions are also offered and specifically delivered to give practical tips and understanding of the key requirements. I would recommend it to anyone looking to deliver a structured and fun approach to language provision.

Language Angels is a fantastic scheme of work that has really transformed the way our school teaches French. Since using Language Angels, we have seen such a difference in the engagement of the children and it has really brought a love of language into the school. The website is incredibly user friendly and the high quality resources have saved teachers so much time. Each lesson ensures children take part in speaking, listening, reading and writing activities which has increased the progression for the children. We now feel that they are so much better prepared for the transition into secondary school language learning. Additionally, Language Angels always go above and beyond to interact with our school on Twitter which we are so appreciative of! Thank you Language Angels!

Language Angels is a great tool to help teach another language to our children. It has great videos for us teachers to learn from. The range of activities the children do is great. We did a pupil voice and they all said they loved learning with Language Angels as it was fun and they liked the part where it helps to pronounce the words and sounds.

We initially started considered changing our Language scheme provider during the first National lockdown, as our school’s IT platform was not compatible with that of the scheme provider - although online learning was available, often it did not match the unit of work classes were following. I enquired about a trial scheme. Language Angels was trialled after reading testimonies from other MFL teachers. The children were told what was happening with regard to the trial and their opinions sought for each Language Angel lesson they had. Unanimously, the children preferred Language Angels. However, it became clearer that as a school we had made the right choice after I had completed teaching the first unit. I had looked at the various videos, uploaded each classes’ individual children’s names, then after inputting the assessment scores, I was given an overall score in percentage terms and Mastery; Exceeding Expectations; Meeting Expectations; Working Towards Expectations and Below Expectations. I could also use informal “I can” assessments. The scheme matches National Curriculum expectations; has key vocabulary, knowledge organisers for each unit. It has Early Language, Intermediate and Progressive Language levels, plus many units within each level, so I can ensure breadth and depth of language learning throughout Key Stage 2. As a school, we are due to be inspected this academic year. I was recently interviewed by a School Improvement Partner in preparation for a possible MFL “deep dive” style interview - I was able to provide evidence to support my answers, as support and guidance given in Language Angels curriculum and tracking and data areas is thorough. I’m completing the school’s first term using Language Angels - I absolutely love watching the children’s engagement and enjoyment in learning Spanish - best of all, I love their informal comments whenever they see me - usually in Spanish, always asking when they’re next having their formal lesson!
(The Galfrid School - Cambridge)
Language Angels is an essential teaching and learning resource for me, especially as I am completely new to Spanish, not knowing a word of it other than Hola, Adios, Agua con gas or Agua sin gas when I'm on holiday! The resource is easy to navigate and very straight forward to use. The interactive, ready-made slides are great fun, engaging pupils and teachers alike, whilst the differentiated, ready-made resources for every lesson accommodate all stages of learning.
