What LANGUAGE ANGELS USERS SAY

Case Study & Testimonials

As a teacher who had only basic Spanish language, we decided to adopt Language Angels as a scheme that could deliver a varied selection of topics across KS2. I find it very easy to pick up and use with no prior vocabulary knowledge. There’s always English translated PowerPoints or notes to help those of us with no knowledge. The sound buttons guide you through correct pronunciation of words so the children always have a ‘native speaker’ to guide them, and the grammar sections help explain what to look out for in Spanish. The children enjoy the songs in the animation section and the lessons have so much content and repetition built into the animated presentations. It is easy to deliver without much planning burden. There’s a range of worksheets to choose from as activities as well as snap card games, or just games from the games section. It makes it possible for anyone to teach a high-quality Spanish lesson, without worrying about personal knowledge and enables our school to plan for progression across KS2.

Paolo and Francesca at Language Angels have been really supportive. As a new MFL lead they have provided excellent advice and have been at the end of the phone with any queries or questions.

Language Angels has really helped us to embed modern languages into our school. We particularly love how some units link to their learning in other curriculum areas. It also boosts teachers' confidence when teaching French. Thanks Language Angels for creating a simple yet effective platform!

Language Angels is a brilliant resource with a well designed scheme of work and exciting topics and activities. There are regular CPD opportunities offered too to support the delivery of primary MFL. I have found this website very useful and easy to navigate. The excellent support I have received when needed is also a strength. I highly recommend this top quality resource also for the help you can find when preparing for a deep dive inspection. A great asset for any school!

Our teaching of MFL French has propelled since we started using Language Angels. Its interactive resources are brilliant to support teachers who may not be as confident in teaching a MFL and help all children to progress with their learning. The children really gain from each of the units and love hearing, speaking and now even writing French! We can highly recommend subscribing to Language Angels and look forward to continuing to subscribe in future years.

Language Angels has been fantastic in helping us organise the teaching of MFL.

We are small rural primary and subject co-ordinators oversee more than one subject area. To help workload and ensure quality of teaching we buy into carefully chosen well planned resources.

The CPD component of Language Angels is also very useful in developing expertise across the school.

At Parklands Primary, we absolutely love Language Angels and the huge positive impact it has had on Spanish at our school. The lessons are easy to follow with excellent differentiated resources and in-depth lesson plans; making it straightforward for all teachers to pick it up and go. It has allowed us to build on our Spanish skills with confidence and the children now absolutely love language learning and they are making excellent progress as a result. The karaoke and games are wonderful, the lesson content is fantastic and the support from Language Angels has been second to none. This is a scheme with heart and soul, and anything you might need, the team are there for you. Without a doubt, the best money our school has ever spent!

We have thoroughly enjoyed using Language Angels so far this term. Lots of teachers have shared how they feel much more confident at delivering the Spanish lessons each week. Children have really enjoyed the visuals and varied listening and speaking tasks. Language Angels is definitely raising the profile of Spanish across the school and we look forward to continuing with it moving forward.

Language Angels has enabled non-specialist teachers in my school to teach languages confidently, knowing that they are providing the children in their class the language experiences they require in order to progress securely to KS3. The slides are created in a way to motivate the children and helps to structure the lessons so that there is a lot of opportunity for learners to practise what they are learning, in order to embed new knowledge, so that they learn more and remember more. At the beginning of each lesson, there are slides which require children to recall prior learning to ensure that they build on this learning so that progression takes place. Resources, such as worksheets which are provided, create an opportunity for language learners to demonstrate what they have learnt and now know. Worksheets are also differentiated to include every child in the class so that the learning is inclusive to all and helps to improve confidence and raise self-esteem. Games, flashcards and songs enable the teacher to be creative with their lessons and also encourage the children to love learning languages. Children experience a sense of achievement as they feel successful and can see how they are making progress. In addition to the implementation of the curriculum the topics covered and the progression between early teaching, intermediate and progressive, ensures the 3 pillars of language learning, phonics, vocabulary and grammar is taught explicitly so that children can continue to develop their ability to understand and produce language. Language Angels also provides CPD in the form of live webinars which helps the specialist, non-specialist and language leaders to improve their knowledge and skills to ensure staff continue to gain confidence in their teaching and leading staff so that children see learning a language as purposeful, providing them with aspirations and enhancing their love of languages.
