Who are Language Magnet?

Language Magnet is a UK based company founded in 2016 by Diana Somers, who has over 30 years experience of teaching modern foreign languages. The mission of the company has always been to provide the best possible foreign language learning course and experience for non-specialist language teachers, empowering all foundational educators to deliver high-quality MFL with confidence.

After becoming a finalist in the National Educational Resources Awards in 2017, the Language Magnet French and Spanish courses went on to win the National Teach Primary Awards in 2019 and 2020. 

The company has been working directly with schools in the UK for the past six years, supporting and developing their MFL curriculum, providing bespoke CPD training and listening and responding to the requests of teachers. This dynamic relationship with schools has meant that the course was designed and developed with the teachers' and learners' needs at the heart of the programme.

The new online portal marks a new and exciting development for Language Magnet, providing a world class subscription service for schools and offering additional features that fully support both the specialist and non-specialist teachers of MFL, whilst maintaining the valuable relationships that it has always had with primary schools. 

Working with schools, for schools.
