I am so thankful for Language Angels! When I picked up MFL as my subject, I was new to subject leadership and was certainly not fluent in French, and felt very overwhelmed. Language Angels is not only a scheme of work, with fabulous lessons, but is also somewhere to turn for support. Paolo and Francesca have answered many an email, and questions during webinars, and they make time to assure you are comfortable and confident delivering MFL in school. I have found their webinars extremely useful, and even been able to share recordings with my colleagues, to improve their confidence in teaching MFL too. As well as personal support, the website has as much information as you could ask for, with lesson breakdowns, curriculum overviews, progression maps, you name it! It has been a life saver for a less experienced teacher like myself, and I know that all my colleagues feel the same. Lots have mentioned how Language Angels has given them the confidence to teach a language, and the children love the lessons too! Not to mention that now we can access units from home too with the home learning webpage - I honestly do not know where I would be without Language Angels!

As a language specialist and subject leader I have been extremely impressed with the subscription package offered by Language Angels. The site has a comprehensive range of resources including power points with pronunciation guides, lesson plans and worksheets. It also has songs, interactive games and an assessment option to track how your students are doing. I find that it is equally suitable for language specialists and non-specialists alike and staff who are not so confident in teaching a language have told me that they love using it they can simply pick it up and use it in class. Subject leaders will find a whole host of resources to support them in setting up their subject leader files, which I have found to be invaluable. Added to all this, there is fantastic, free CPD which is also offered and Francesca and Paolo are always on hand to offer advice and support if needed. I strongly recommend subscribing!

At Saint Francis, we have been using Language Angels with great success for a few years now. It is clear, easy-to-follow scheme with cross curricular links. It is also a great step-by-step approach to learning French. Language Angels is a great aid to those teachers who can speak French and to those who cannot speak French it is a very handy and effective tool, with guides to pronunciation and grammar. I would recommend this approach and scheme of work to any who are searching for something accessible and not at all daunting! An added bonus, is that during lockdown there is also a clear path to learning from home in their home schooling section.

Thanks for your amazing resource. The teachers who have never taught French before absolutely love the lessons. They are positively buzzing. The children look forward to their lesson too. All the children at home are able to access the home learning and are doing great work. I copy the worksheet onto a Google Jamboard so that they can write on it and submit their work in Google Classroom. It's working well.

I would highly recommend Language Angels for use in school. I came across Language Angels when I did one of their online CPD webinars during the first lockdown which was invaluable. As I had recently taken over leading MFL in the primary school that I work in, I must admit that I did feel a bit lost as to where to start and on how to promote progression (and what that would look like) but Language Angels provided clear guidance on how to teach Primary MFL. As a school we have since signed up to Language Angels and feedback from the teachers has been great and the pupils love learning Spanish in their classes. We have also used the home learning platform so that children can still access their topics from home in lockdown. Overall, the 'presence' of languages has increased in our school which is fantastic.

Language Angels has been excellent for our school, especially for those non-specialist colleagues who are worried about pronunciation, as the PPT for each lesson does it all for you. The package provides excellent resources for teachers, and useful documents, CPD and support for me as subject leader. Their remote learning programme has been fantastic and very well received by colleagues and children. Paolo is very approachable and prompt to reply if ever I have a question. I would thoroughly recommend Language Angels.

Language Angels is a well-structured and engaging programme designed to support teachers delivering modern foreign language lessons following the languages programme of study in the national curriculum in primary schools. I have found the ‘Tracking and Progression Tool’ a simple and useful way of keeping a record for monitoring the children’s progress across year groups and the CPD webinars offered throughout the academic year to subscribers are always informative and most enjoyable. I'd like to thank Paolo and Francesca and all the team at Language Angels for their continued support.
(Benenden C E Primary School - Cranbrook)
I have introduced Language Angels now in 3 different primary schools and in each case, the confidence of the teachers (non specialist) has increased in terms of their ability to correctly deliver French in all year groups in a progressive manner. Over the years, LA has continued to develop their offering to meet changing school requirements and has moved to offer a proper remote schooling offer that has meant minimal interruption to language acquisition. I particularly appreciated the high level CPD that is free and resources made available for wider staff training. Finally, the response from the whole Language Angels team is always professional, helpful, tailored and speedy!

The home-schooling programme that ‘language angels’ has provided has meant that the children at our school have not lost any learning time with their French. They are all enjoying accessing the materials from home and continue to make good progress with their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.

I can’t thank you enough for your fantastic scheme of work - Language Angels. I began using it this September and found it very easy to use in the classroom. During this stressful time, remote teaching with Language Angels has been such a massive support to me. I have been using it with Years 1 to 6 and the children are really enjoying the topics and learning so much about the structure of the language to help them make good progress. They are also able to learn independently through playing the games in between lessons, which helps them consolidate the vocabulary. I very much enjoy the free webinars that you run and feel that I am getting some great , relevant CPD training and meeting other teachers. I can’t thank the Language Angels team enough.
