We couldn’t be happier with our Language Angels package. It offers a clearly structured, comprehensive learning journey for all KS2 pupils with clear outcomes. The lesson plans and resources are brilliant and very high quality. They support members of staff who aren’t language specialists and give them the confidence to deliver high quality lessons. The audio elements for pronunciation are amazing – we are all learning as we go along! The full package which includes lesson plans and all resources mean teacher workload is kept to an absolute minimum too. We have recently appointed a qualified language teacher who is French to help deliver our MFL offer and she has said it by far the very best programme she has come across and is enjoying using it to deliver sessions across KS2.

Language Angels has transformed the quality of our teaching of French overnight. As a result, we are seeing more writing being produced, of a higher quality and children really being challenged. The phonics lessons and grammar teaching embedded in Language Angels means that we are teaching the fundamentals, not just words and phrases linked to a topic - we are teaching children the skills they need to become life-long linguists.

Language Angels were recommended to me by another teacher, who praised the learning platform as simple and accessible to everyone. Our school also subscribed to it, after a one month trial. As MFL lead, I listened to teachers' and children's voices. Children loved the songs and teachers loved the fact that lessons were hassle free and ready-planned, all accessible by a click of a button. I also got a lot of admin support from the team with creating logins and individual pupil accounts - a real time saver. Thank you Language Angels.

Language Angels has revolutionised the way we teach French. It is a supportive teaching tool for non-specialist teachers and it has allowed us to teach consistently across the school. All of the staff and children who have used it talk so positively of their experiences. The knowledge organisers are extremely useful as they show the phonics and grammar focus in each unit and allow teachers and children to see the key learning. The planning documentation is clear and no further lesson planning is required so it saves staff time, allowing them to focus on the key knowledge they are delivering. The continual updating of resources and units is very much appreciated and the support for a non-specialist subject leader, like myself, is invaluable through emails and CPD to keep us updated. I would highly recommend Language Angels to anyone looking to improve their curriculum.

Absolutely everything you need! Clear and simple to use, full of resources for the teachers and the pupils including brilliant assessment materials! A fantastic scheme of work that makes teaching a foreign language easy for the teachers and definitely fun for the children!
(Henbury View First School - Dorset)
We have used Language Angels now at our school for just over a year- we had no hesitation in re-subscribing for our second year! Language Angels has completely transformed our MFL curriculum. We now know that all knowledge is progressive and that the children are continually building their understanding of French, as well as having loads of fun (the songs are a real hit!) It has really helped with teacher subject knowledge, and now all staff, including support staff, feel confident to teach and model even if they are not language specialists. For myself as subject leader, the resources provided around curriculum mapping and the regular CPD webinars are invaluable in ensuring that we continue to improve and drive the curriculum forward. Language Angels is a fantastic resource, and we cannot recommend them highly enough!

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.
(Emmanuel Community School - Walthamstow)
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!
(Barrowcliff School - North Yorkshire)
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.
(Owlsmoor Primary School - Berkshire)
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.
