(Queenswell Junior School - London)
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!

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!

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!
(St. Michael's Woolmer Green Primary School - Hertfordshire)
I would highly recommend Language Angels as a comprehensive scheme of work. The progressive lessons are an enjoyable learning experience for the children incorporating a range of learning techniques. We have non-specialist teachers in our school who initially lacked confidence in teaching French, however the scheme helped them to overcome this. As a subject leader I find the curriculum guidance very useful as all policies and supporting documents are available. The assessment tracker tool is easy to use and there are clear reports which are useful for monitoring.
(St Peter's Methodist Primary School - Canterbury)
As a language lead, I have the onerous task of overseeing the delivery of MFL lessons by non linguist colleagues. With Language Angels, I can rest assured that everything, including audios, differentiated worksheets and assessment tasks, are all in one place. I can also rely on clear progression documents to ensure that MFL provision is meeting the needs of all pupils as they progress from beginner to secondary ready stages of language learning.
(Horsmonden Primary Academy - Kent)
LA has really helped our staff get a feel for the language they are teaching. The visuals and the activities make learning fun for the children and enable them to learn the correct sounds, pronunciation and grammar. We couldn't teach accurately without it.
(Varna Community Primary School - Manchester)
We have recently switched from having a very experienced Spanish specialist teacher to class teachers taking Spanish in our school. This is something that some staff initially lacked confidence in however, we have now successfully (and smoothly!) transitioned to teaching Spanish - and having fun whilst doing so! Language Angels have honestly gone above and beyond! They have been there for us every step of the way. They have tailored our school curriculum, worked alongside our MFL lead with assessment criteria and hosted CPD for staff! In addition to this, we find the units and resources provided self-explanatory and incredibly easy to work from. We now hold a half termly Spanish quiz for staff as we are learning alongside the children! Thank you so much for all of your support Language Angels!
