Adopting the Language Angels SOW in our school has given the teachers much more confidence to deliver language lessons (French) even if they have no experience of the language themselves. The lessons are fun and engaging for the children and assessment is easy to do and to record. The unit planner, curriculum tracker and the curriculum guidance documents (particularly the Intent, Implementation and Impact statement) proved invaluable during our Ofsted inspection last year. Moreover, whenever we've needed advice, Paolo and the team are always there to help.

Language Angels' been brilliant both resources/subscription and the team! A live saver for a subject leader like me that's got no French background at all. Having very informative webinars with lots of great ideas, special day celebration by Virginie, new resources, children's games to mention a few has been a game changer. I've had good support and very timely too! I love your practical ideas, energy, passion and positivity. Thank you!

Language Angels has been an amazing find for our school. Staff who were reluctant to teach French, due to a lack of confidence and knowledge of the language, are now willingly and confidently delivering lessons. The website is fantastic with everything you need already prepared for you. I was recently observed by the Deputy Headteacher and SENCO and they could not believe the transformation since we started using Language Angels. They commented on the amount of written work in books and the fact that every child in the class was involved and all speaking French. Some of our SEND children thrive in French lessons. I have contacted Language Angels several times for support and to ask questions and always get a response straight away, with nothing ever being too much trouble. I have already recommended Language Angels to other schools in the local area.

Language Angels has been invaluable in the consistent approach to teaching languages in our school. Having spent 14 years teaching languages in secondary schools, I was dubious about using a scheme when I moved to the primary phase. However, as soon as I saw the quality of the presentations and accompanying differentiated resources, I was sold. It has improved the confidence of members of staff who previously reported they were worried about teaching French because they didn’t know how to pronounce the words themselves and the children enjoy the karaoke songs and games which accompany most lessons. I have also enjoyed participating in the many, varied, high quality CPD events Language Angels offers (for free!). The team at Language Angels are always very quick to respond to any queries or requests for support too. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Language Angels to anyone.

Language Angels has been fantastic in our school for raising enthusiasm for modern foreign languages across KS2. It's so easy to use, both teachers and children look forward to our French lessons! The scheme ensures progression and the building of knowledge across KS2. The assessment and tracking tool has been invaluable as subject leader. I cannot praise Language Angels enough, thank you!
(Bournville Primary School - Weston-super-Mare)
I have no regrets having chosen 'Language Angels' for our school. It has been perfect as a bright, fun, clear way for us to introduce our children to a new language. And the bonus is - as we grow into the language, Language Angels grows too! There are always new things to discover, updated units, excellent webinars to attend, and on hand help and advice always available. I highly recommend it for any school!
(St Mary's & St Benedict's RC Primary School - Preston)
I have been teaching French to LKS2 for a year now. The scheme has really helped me and the children love the songs! I will move up with the current Y3 and Y4s in September and Language Angels gives us the flexibility to have a non-specialist teacher take over from me in Y3. I have also taken part in the webinars (and am already booked on for next one!) I have found these really useful.
(St Stephen's Catholic Primary School - Kent)
We have been using Language Angels for about seven years now and it has transformed our French lessons. My non-specialist KS2 colleagues who teach French to their own class love it because it provides all the resources needed for a lesson, including pronunciation by a native French speaker, which a lot of teachers worry about. I love it because of all the materials and support it gives me as a subject leader, including the excellent, free webinars. Paolo, Francesca and Virginie are all very approachable and easy to speak to if we have a question, and they respond promptly. A brilliant resource which I would definitely recommend.

It is great! Structured and engaging. The children enjoy it - especially the karaoke area!
(Elveden C of E Primary Academy - Suffolk)
As a school, we were stuck using the same old scheme, which was boring the children and the teachers. I had a number of staff who really didn’t feel confident using our previous scheme so I looked for something new and found Language Angels! I love that it targets not just spoken linguistic skills, but written skill, grammar skills and reading skills too! I finally feel like we are going to be able to send children up to secondary school with the correct level of learning. Furthermore, as language lead, I highly value the end of unit assessments and also the knowledge organisers. In addition, the fact that it is differentiated is an added bonus! We love using Language Angels and already we are seeing children that are more engaged and becoming more competent in French!
