Year 6 Teacher 

"Brilliant! The Language Magnet course and the support are excellent. Two years ago French was rarely taught across the school. Now it is taught weekly and it is taught well. We teach French from nursery to Year 6. Staff confidence in teaching French has increased greatly and it's all thanks to the scheme."

MFL Co-ordinator

"An engaging, interactive and progressive programme that enables all children to achieve their potential when speaking, reading, listening to and writing a modern foreign language. Resources are pitched well to each year group and the layout of the modules allows children the chance to practise earlier skills and embed them in many different ways. Our school is reaping the benefits of this exciting course and pupils have a heightened enthusiasm for French." 
C. Fletcher

I would highly recommend the programme to all primary schools looking for an effective scheme that will both highly motivate and demonstrate outstanding progress of pupils’ understanding of language.”

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Yes, they are identical courses.

The course is designed to use 1 module per term or per 12 weeks. Therefore, 3 modules per year is ideal. However, the modules are flexible to suit the pace of each cohort and ability level. Teachers may start their class where they feel is most appropriate in the course, but most will benefit from starting from Module 1, even if their students have previously learned aspects of the language. Students can be fast-tracked if they have sufficient prior knowledge of the language. 

Yes. Each presentation has accompanying audio with the text in both the French and the Spanish courses. The Spanish audio is Castilian Spanish, the standard form of European Spanish.

Yes. Every lesson has a detailed and easy-to-follow lesson plan, which fully supports non-specialist teachers. The lessons are also suitable for specialist language teachers, who may want to add other elements of language to the course.

The current version of the course is best suited to primary/elementary schools and lower years in secondary/high schools as a foundational course for higher French and Spanish study. It is also suitable for SEN (Special Educational Needs) schools.

The course is fully differentiated to support all ability levels. Students make significant progression each module, which is measured with clearly defined assessments and assessment criteria for marking. Students can also track their own progression through the course with self-assessment pupil trackers. The "expected achievement" level of the course is proven to enable pupils to reach a standard equivalent to halfway through current Year 8 (UK) or 7th Grade (USA) level of MFL education, if all the modules are completed.

Yes. Every module has at least two assessments out of the four skill areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Assessment is fully supported with easy-to-follow assessment criteria, marking schemes and detailed lesson plans.

All the vocabulary and grammar is fully explained and pronunciation support is embedded throughout the programme.
