Both students and teachers love using Language Angels at our primary school! The lessons are fun and engaging, and the helpful pronunciation audios mean that everyone is confident when teaching.
(Willowdown Primary School - Bridgwater)
At Willowdown the children and staff have absolutely loved the Language Angels programme. Staff find it useful and supportive and it has given them a confidence in teaching another language that they did not previously have. Children love the recognisable resources, the PowerPoints support them and they enjoy the karaoke videos that are also available. Overall we have loved using Language Angels and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

As a linguist and a subject leader of French, I have found Language Angels not only to be an invaluable, time-saving tool for teachers, but also a fantastic, progressive scheme in developing the teaching and learning of French in my primary school. The PowerPoints all have audio files to help non-specialists with the pronunciation of all vocabulary used within a unit. Additionally, there are PowerPoints to improve pronunciation through the teaching of phonics in the target language. Language Angels even has PowerPoints on cultural aspects of the country of the language being studied so that all strands of the KS2 Programme of Study are fully covered. The accompanying resources for each lesson are excellent: knowledge organisers and teacher notes are comprehensive and the worksheets are differentiated at three levels, saving a lot of teacher planning and preparation time. At the end of each unit, there are pupil self-assessment sheets as well as end-of-unit mini tests for the teacher to assess what each pupil has understood and retained in reading, writing and listening in the target language. As a school, we invested in the full package: French, Italian and Spanish and have used the Italian PowerPoints and resources to run an after-school club in Italian and this has saved time in the need to prepare and plan for the club. We have found Language Angels to be very good value for money for what it delivers and the team at Language Angels are friendly, supportive and always on hand to answer any of your queries with a very rapid response time. Thank you Language Angels. We are glad to have found you.

Language Angels is an exciting tool for teaching and learning French. - It has developed communication skills including key skills of speaking and listening in my pupils. - It encouraged cooperative learning method which gets my pupils motivated and excited about learning French. - It accommodates all learners through differentiation in their worksheets. - It is accessible to all my pupils and non Specialist Teachers both in school and at home. - GAMES: what my pupils enjoy most is learning French through games which reinforces what was taught in class. All thanks to Language Angels. I encourage YOU to use Language Angels.

We couldn’t be happier with our Language Angels package. It offers a clearly structured, comprehensive learning journey for all KS2 pupils with clear outcomes. The lesson plans and resources are brilliant and very high quality. They support members of staff who aren’t language specialists and give them the confidence to deliver high quality lessons. The audio elements for pronunciation are amazing – we are all learning as we go along! The full package which includes lesson plans and all resources mean teacher workload is kept to an absolute minimum too. We have recently appointed a qualified language teacher who is French to help deliver our MFL offer and she has said it by far the very best programme she has come across and is enjoying using it to deliver sessions across KS2.

Language Angels has transformed the quality of our teaching of French overnight. As a result, we are seeing more writing being produced, of a higher quality and children really being challenged. The phonics lessons and grammar teaching embedded in Language Angels means that we are teaching the fundamentals, not just words and phrases linked to a topic - we are teaching children the skills they need to become life-long linguists.

Language Angels were recommended to me by another teacher, who praised the learning platform as simple and accessible to everyone. Our school also subscribed to it, after a one month trial. As MFL lead, I listened to teachers' and children's voices. Children loved the songs and teachers loved the fact that lessons were hassle free and ready-planned, all accessible by a click of a button. I also got a lot of admin support from the team with creating logins and individual pupil accounts - a real time saver. Thank you Language Angels.

Language Angels has revolutionised the way we teach French. It is a supportive teaching tool for non-specialist teachers and it has allowed us to teach consistently across the school. All of the staff and children who have used it talk so positively of their experiences. The knowledge organisers are extremely useful as they show the phonics and grammar focus in each unit and allow teachers and children to see the key learning. The planning documentation is clear and no further lesson planning is required so it saves staff time, allowing them to focus on the key knowledge they are delivering. The continual updating of resources and units is very much appreciated and the support for a non-specialist subject leader, like myself, is invaluable through emails and CPD to keep us updated. I would highly recommend Language Angels to anyone looking to improve their curriculum.

Absolutely everything you need! Clear and simple to use, full of resources for the teachers and the pupils including brilliant assessment materials! A fantastic scheme of work that makes teaching a foreign language easy for the teachers and definitely fun for the children!
(Henbury View First School - Dorset)
We have used Language Angels now at our school for just over a year- we had no hesitation in re-subscribing for our second year! Language Angels has completely transformed our MFL curriculum. We now know that all knowledge is progressive and that the children are continually building their understanding of French, as well as having loads of fun (the songs are a real hit!) It has really helped with teacher subject knowledge, and now all staff, including support staff, feel confident to teach and model even if they are not language specialists. For myself as subject leader, the resources provided around curriculum mapping and the regular CPD webinars are invaluable in ensuring that we continue to improve and drive the curriculum forward. Language Angels is a fantastic resource, and we cannot recommend them highly enough!
