Languagenut has been designed to support primary school teachers in the delivery of foreign languages, ESL and Te Reo Maori. Covering four years worth of learning Languagenut unlocks the business of learning languages in a way that is rigorous, progressive and fun.
Aware that the teaching and learning of a language can be something of an overwhelming experience, Languagenut is as child-friendly and accessible as it could possibly be. Using song and seven tried-and-tested game formats, we have created a site that is time saving, engaging, rich with virtual resources and, for adults and children alike, wonderfully stress free.

Children love learning new words and linguistic concepts when playing games. It's fun, teacher-light and, when linked to the rigor of progression through the years, incredibly valuable. With over 1000 words per language, many Languagenut games can feed into class projects.
What is true of games, is also true of song. We all know that children possess prodigious gifts for memorising and manipulating content through song. Relating songs and rhymes to appropriate levels of learning, Languagenut makes provision for these gifts in a way that is easy to access, present and teach. Hear a song now
Storytelling - or narrative context – has always been one of the major cornerstones of good classroom practice. This is especially true when it comes to learning a foreign language, where repetition is a core aspect of the learning experience. Stories create a context. They make things meaningful. Laced with humour, with pathos, they surprise, they satisfy, and they create in the listener a love for words. Interested, challenged, children actively seek out the repetition in stories, making the task of building up word banks, and of improving pronunciation, something to look forward to, something that is practical, concrete, fun.Hear a story now
"I’ve been on your website for the past hour and a half!!!
I think it’s absolutely great! The colors/pictures are perfect for the age group. I always teach with games because I’ve discovered that students are more receptive.
I’m going to try it out on my 7th graders tomorrow and I’ll let you know how they react…
So far, I truly, truly think it’s fun and addictive. I also really like the component for teacher materials, where we can download printable worksheets. ( it cuts our work in half, because we don’t have to go out looking for it) Teachers love having one central network for materials.
You have my full recommendation! Great job!"

The new tracking tool allows teachers to track and reward student progress. Its a major addition to the site, and makes charting achievement a doddle.
The way it works is simple. Teachers create a class list, print student login details, then track, reward and feedback. Take a look at the video tutorial to get an overview. The tracking tool could save you hours!
