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.

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.

As a devoted Language Angel, I must admit that the home schooling section that you have created has been life-saving. The lessons are detailed and the best of all is that pupils can self- assess, which takes the pressure off teachers marking endlessly. Thank you for adding new material all the time as well.

Language Angels are a fantastic company to work with. They are always just at the end of an email to answer any questions and send out just the right amount of timely emails with information about new features or to remind you of how they can help with tracking and assessment.
The children love the interactive aspect of the lessons and, even though I am a confident French speaker, I love the fact the planning and resources are of a high quality so I don't need to spend hours preparing to deliver a good lesson that we all enjoy.

We trialled Language Angels over six years ago using their very generous 6-week Free Trial period and we haven't looked back. As subject leader responsible for supporting reticent, non-specialist staff I had plenty of time to check it out and allow (encourage) my colleagues to give it a go. It proved to be just what we needed and meant that myself and my colleagues felt well supported with differentiated lesson plans, authentic voice clips, PowerPoint presentations for every lesson complete with teacher 'script' and interactive games and differentiated activities. All this for a wide range of unit subjects including an assessment lesson. We also had access to assessment and tracking tools, plus more. Since then, Language Angels have gone from strength to strength, adding more units across three levels, songs and more games that can now be accessed from home; and can be set and monitored to suit. In addition, Language Angels provide excellent FREE CPD and during the recent pandemic created a successful Home School section (children are fully engaged), delivered CPD and offered unfailing customer support throughout. I really can't recommend Language Angels enough and school budgets being what they are, I HAVE looked at other schemes, but for value for money I think Language Angels has it all!
