Language Angels is the scheme to use whether you are new to the role of an MFL lead in your school or a specialist like myself. I have been able to implement Spanish into our school over the last three years by using this scheme. The scheme is varied and balanced and you even have the option with Paolo and Francesca and the team to have a bespoke curriculum made for you, it really is that simple. The tracking tool and assessments in each unit allow you to be able to track across a year group, class or like myself, the whole school. I have grown in confidence with the scheme as a subject lead as everything you need to be able to teach MFL effectively and accurately is there all ready for you to use. The lessons are designed in such a way that you don’t have to worry if your children are making progress as they do through the grammar progression in units and the vocabulary that is taught and built upon as they move through different year groups. This scheme is completely fool proof too! I have other colleagues who were reluctant to teach MFL, as they did not have language knowledge themselves. This scheme takes the pressure out of teaching MFL with the audio buttons for correct pronunciation already there. The children love to hear the audio and when I have completed monitoring, it has been fantastic to see my colleagues growing in their confidence too as they now use the audio buttons but are also speaking more in Spanish. We have recently introduced KS1 to Spanish through the karaoke videos and simple songs that the scheme offers and this has been invaluable to implement a love of language learning throughout the whole school, perfect for when the children move into KS2, they already have that love of languages firmly cemented into their daily routine in school. If you are looking for a complete package of language teaching, then Language Angels has to be the scheme you reach for. There is no hidden extras like other schemes; you get exactly what the team promotes. Children in your school, making clear progression in MFL, children who are exposed to the wider world through language learning and children who are developing their love of language learning which will continue into further education not just in a Primary setting. Everything you need for those all-important visitors whenever they arrive to Deep Dive into MFL in your school is there with this scheme. The Language Angels team are there every step of the way too, I cannot thank the team enough for answering even the smallest of queries about MFL provision. They are always on hand to guide you through whatever the concern is. The CPD is also phenomenal, it is always a pleasure to be part of the CPD with Language Angels even on a weekend as it is informative and I know I am a better subject lead for completing it as there is always something useful, inspiring and that you will be able to use it in everyday teaching. Thank you to you all at Language Angels for making my role as MFL lead so much easier and achievable and just being there every step of the way.

We have been using Language Angels for the past 18 months and in that time, I can honestly say that the pupils at our school have made excellent progress. They always look forward to French lessons and particularly love the games and karaoke. They have a positive attitude towards French and demonstrate this through the enthusiasm and participation they show in lessons. As MFL leader, I have been given lots of support and guidance by Paolo and his team and they are always on hand to answer any questions. All the documentation that you need as an MFL leader is there to be adapted for your particular school which has saved a lot of time. Language Angels is also fantastic for non specialists and I have witnessed teacher's confidence and enjoyment of French teaching, increase. I have nothing but praise for Paolo and his team and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Language Angels to other schools.

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.
