St Peter's CE Primary School (Saltburn-by-the-Sea)
Language Angels has worked really well for our children. They are enthused by the language thanks to the fab resources, games and songs. It's been heartening to hear children chatting about French in the playground and singing the songs together in their free time. Our staff have love the materials too. We are all so time poor now that having a ready-made program at our fingertips has made sure French is never pushed out of the week as it was in the past. We are all able to teach languages across KS2 in a cohesive and consistent way. In short, Language Angels was and is exactly what we were looking for!

We have been using Language Angels for our third consecutive year. We started with a short trial and the accessibility it provided us as well as the clear horizontal progression for the children have been a solid platform for them to develop and fly. This has been evidenced on a termly basis on their easy to use assessment system, which is clearly related to the National Curriculum requirements. Pupils have really enjoyed it and have been learning and reviewing by using the online games at home.

I think Language Angels is an excellent resource; it is easily accessible, relevant and gives the teacher everything they need to deliver a lesson where significant learning takes place. I have a degree in Modern Languages, but colleagues who have little or no knowledge of another language are equally happy and comfortable using this programme. In my experience, the children love the range of resources - from crosswords, to matching games, to songs and stories - and I love the pronunciation guides, the clear lesson plans and additional notes which come with each unit. It's all simple and easy to use and it saves me a lot of time because it's all right there and extremely comprehensive. Language Angels is set up in such a way that you can dip in and out for five or ten minute bursts, or you can teach a longer lesson with plenty of variety, if and when time allows. Additionally, there are units which cover - amongst other things - Christmas, the Second World War and the environment, complimenting topics you might be teaching at school. There are many excellent language teaching resources out there, but I have found that the team at Language Angels really goes the extra mile to support teachers. They're always mindful of the pressures we face and the budget constraints we are under. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their services and I really appreciate what they do. The most important thing however, is that the kids in our school really enjoy learning French!

We have used language Angels for two years now. The teachers enjoy the ease of following the syllabus and SLT enjoy clarity of the tracking and progression tool. The children have utilised the at home access as well.

Language Angels is a great language toolkit consisting of planning, teaching tools, interactive activities, tests and assessment tools. It ensures coverage of the curriculum and reduces long hours of planning. The children are engaged and excited about Italian and have access to an excellent selection of online games which they can use at home as well as school. Language Angels is current and always looking at ways to improve their service. Thank you, Language Angels.

I have been using Language Angels for French language teaching in our school for two years and I find it extremely easy to use, especially if you are a non specialist teacher. The children love the interactive games we play at the end of each session as well as the songs. It is also great that it links to some of the topics covered in school, like WWII, which gives us the opportunity to teach French very much like the CLIL method.
(Round Diamond Primary School - Hertfordshire)
We have been using Language Angels at our school since September this year and we are absolutely delighted with the difference it is making to our MFL here at Round Diamond. It is the most fantastic resource with lesson plans and worksheets all easily accessed to prepare each lesson. The power point presentations mean we can also deliver the lesson with new confidence and without the stress of finding the resources ourselves. As none of our staff are French speakers, to have the correct pronunciation for the children to hear has given us all a boost and it is very reassuring to know we are doing the right thing. The scheme is carefully planned providing well organised, progressive learning across the school that meets or I feel exceeds expectations for MFL provision. I was thrilled to see how successful our children were after following the assessments in lesson six of our first topic. Our staff are also very happy with how easy the scheme is to follow- even the tracking has been organised brilliantly making it simple and quick to administer. Finally the most important feature of Language Angels is that the children really love it and look forward to their French lesson. They are gaining in confidence every week and it is something for everyone to look forward to. I should also mention that Paolo has been very supportive and is always happy to help and we feel the whole package is incredibly good value for money and well worth every penny.

Language Angels has made the teaching of French in our school a much more enjoyable experience. I find that the structure and additional information provided give me the confidence that I am covering all of the curriculum objectives and am able to easily assess progress and attainment. The wide range of differentiated activities ensure that all of the pupils are challenged and supported at the right level. The children love the games and they are excellent as a way to reinforce and apply the vocabulary learnt during each unit.

Since using Language Angels at our school I have found the children to be engaged and excited about French. I feel relaxed and confident about teaching it and I love using the colourful eye catching presentations each week with voice files to support me when needed. It has been wonderful to hear the children, their parents and teaching staff commenting on how much the children are enjoying their French lessons. Hearing from the parents that children are sharing their learning at home is particularly wonderful. Many thanks to the Language Angels team for your fantastic resources and support!

I have been using Language Angels for a couple of months and have been very impressed by the overall product. As a French teacher in a primary school I find the website very entertaining for the children with its interactive games provided for each units. It is also full of worksheets with different sort of exercises adapted to children's capabilities. The vocabulary section of the units is very well done and the core knowledge of the French language. It is easy to use as well. Paolo Pini and his team provide amazing client support and training. I can only recommend it.
