(Horton Grange Primary School - Bradford)
Having studied languages myself at University, I am very selective about the materials that I share with colleagues at my school. Language Angels has been a fantastic resource to share school-wide to support non-specialist teachers with the delivery of MFL. The teachers feel much more confident in planning and delivering lessons and appreciate the sound clips and differentiated resources. The children love the online game platform and from a subject coordinator point of view, the progress documents and overviews are brilliant. I have also always appreciated the hands-on approach from Language Angels with CPD. No question is too big and they are always willing to offer bespoke support. I would recommend to anyone!

Our staff and children enjoy using Language angels to learn Spanish. The sequences build on prior learning and are colourful and interactive which the children love. Our Year 3s, learning Spanish for the first time, have found the activities engaging and useful to help remember new words and phrases. The teachers (some also learning Spanish for the first time!) have found the pronunciation sound clips particularly useful.

MFL is a tricky subject to co-ordinate as many people do not see themselves as natural speakers of foreign languages. This then translates into their confidence in teaching the subject. Language Angels has given us the platform to deliver French in a fun and engaging way, which is easy for teachers to navigate and deliver. The voice notes are so handy - many adults in the classroom feel as though they are learning too! The webinars have offered insightful ideas and have also helped to deliver best practice. We are relatively new to Language Angels but as MFL lead, I can already see the benefits.

Zero to Hero Language Teaching Using Language Angels We have bought in Language Angels to ensure an organised and well-planned curriculum offer in Key stage 2 for Modern Foreign Languages focusing on French. We had very little French teaching taking place before we bought in these resources. We are a small rural school and subject leaders co-ordinate more than on subject area and are very stretched. Language Angels is a good value resource, with a long and meaningful trail period to ensure the programme and resources met our needs.

At Queenswell Junior School we have found Language Angels to be an invaluable teaching resource. The children love the interactive PowerPoints, games and songs. For the staff who have no prior knowledge of the language, it has given them the confidence to teach Spanish successfully. All the units have lesson plans, learning objectives and vocabulary lists. The speaker icons on the PowerPoints ensure that the words are pronounced correctly. The grammar is clearly explained. The units become increasingly challenging as you move through the learning stages ensuring progression across the school. Thank you Language Angels!
(Fishtoft Academy - Lincolnshire)
Language Angels offer exceptional customer service and support. Leading two very different schools: one 2-form entry and one very small school with only 50 pupils in total, we needed a completely bespoke approach for each school and many staff were concerned about delivering MFL for the first time. However, all of our concerns and queries were soon allayed, with expert support provided in relation to developing a rolling programme and implementation plan matched to their individual needs. The children are now a full half term in and are absolutely loving Spanish. Our staff are also confident in their delivery due to the excellent resources and training that come with being part of the Language Angels family. Thank you Paolo & the team!
(St Margaret Clitherow Catholic Primary - Bracknell)
I couldn't be more impressed with Language Angels who certainly live up to their name. We came from a position of not having taught MFL for a number of years, no staff skills/ confidence, and struggling to work out how to start teaching MFL and make a plan for meaningful progression. After inquiring, I received a bespoke unit progression plan from Francesca the very next day, which was super impressive, and the support has continued to go above and beyond my expectations ever since. The children are absolutely loving learning French and teachers are now empowered, through the comprehensive resources, to develop their own skills and are no longer traumatised at the thought of teaching languages!

Teachers in our school love using Language Angels. Great resources to help with structured teaching and since using this scheme pupils have grown in confidence and enthusiasm when speaking French.
(St Benedict's Catholic Primary School - Wilmslow)
We have been using Language Angels for 4 years now and it is firmly embedded. We have used the schemes to map out our curriculum and have linked it to the other subjects/units taught in school. Thanks to Language Angels we have a progressive curriculum which enables all pupils to succeed. The units of work are engaging and our pupils love learning Spanish. They are making great progress and our Year 6 pupils are able to read and write effectively. When they leave us, their enthusiasm for languages goes with them! It has also made a huge difference to the confidence of the staff teaching Spanish because none of them are language specialists yet they are well supported to teach it. They are guided with pronunciation and know that the children are learning it correctly. They teach Spanish with enthusiasm and you can see that throughout school when they say, "Hola, que tal?" When they pass me! A very effective resource that we do not want to be without!
(Almond Hill Junior School - Hertfordshire)
Language Angels gives us the backbone of our curriculum which means we, as busy teachers, have been able to spend more time focusing on adapting individual lessons to suit our children. We can choose the most appropriate resources from a wide range which cover all the main skills of speaking/listening/reading/writing. The resources are consistent, engaging and we acknowledge how much progress our children make using the Language Angels programme. As the subject leader, the knowledge organisers, curriculum sequencing and assessment guidance helps me to know we are doing a good job of delivering a good quality MFL education to our children. Please keep up the additional pupil games, cultural event games and home learning resources. These are the bits the children love the most!
