We absolutely love it. Our pupils are doing lots of independent work with it, in particular the boys who are loving the competitiveness of it all. Our staff are using it as plenary activities in lessons and are able to really challenge the pupils with the exam practice and GCSE activities.
Languagenut has been a fantastic addition to the language learning at De Lacy. The pupils are constantly asking where they are ranked ad are fully engaged with this software. It complements what we do in class brilliantly and as a teacher it is easy to track. Pupils say it makes learning languages interactive and fun and it is easy to use.
I would like to say a big thank you to you and your team for supporting my Director team and our academies as we move into our second term of using Languagenut.
We first came across Languagenut when one of my staff alerted us to how useful she was finding it in the classroom. Once I had seen her using it in action, I did not hesitate to contact you to find out more about it. Your team were so helpful especially when Dan came up to see us at our next academy meeting to demonstrate the programme in full.
From then on, I knew that Languagenut had to be part of our MFL offer in all our 16 academies.
All my staff rave about this and how easy it is to use.
“Languagenut is a wonderful tool for our students at Doha College. The concentration on the 4 distinct skills and vocabulary, combined within the clear way in which the KS3 curriculum flows into the GCSE and IGCSE courses is fantastic. I particularly find the listening exercises to be useful in exam preparation and having all this material at your fingertips is invaluable. As Languagenut covers all languages currently taught at Doha College it has been a fantastic and welcome addition to our existing resources.
Most of all, our students enjoy using it (exam classes particularly), who at the end of our trial period asked to access it further.
The tracking tool is particularly useful in order to assign exercises to a group or an individual. Seeing their progress or even monitoring their access and understanding has really helped promote healthy competition within the classroom but most of all has given me solid data to inform my lesson planning and assess my students’ understanding.
Paul and his team have accompanied us every step of the way and taken the time to train us individually which has allowed us to use the resource to its fullest. They have always been on hand to answer any questions and help us along the way. I would highly recommend Languagenut to any colleague looking to support, engage or stretch their students.”
Languagenut is the most complete digital language resource that combines the features of Linguascope, Vocab Express and Pearson Active Learn plus a whole lot more under one platform. Languagenut offers better content, more flexibility and engages our students.
The ability to assign work to students and the Exam Revision area are great features they save us hours of time every week. The platform allows me to give written and audible feedback to my students including the only resource with spontaneous speech practice as homework has been a revelation.
As a private tutor, Languagenut is an excellent resource I am using to help pupils of all ages learn and practice vocab as well as essential GCSE skills. It is easy to use, engaging and fun for pupils. I would highly recommend it.”
I love being able to see their progress when I go into the Admin/Class management section and this allows me to give individual feedback and direction. I am delighted in how positively engaged the students are in Languagenut and will continue using it for other topics.
• Internet based so can be used anywhere, anytime.
• A range of languages available, we use Maori for our whole school and English for our ESOL students.
• Gives confidence to our English speaking staff who are teaching Te Reo Maori this year.
• A huge range of relevant and engaging contexts
• Plenty of activities for teachers and students
• Able to check whether teachers are using the programme
• Assessments for students to use when they use their own login
• Very low cost
There are a variety of languages available on Languagenut and I believe it would suit the uptake of any and all languages – and could be an excellent support for Te Reo.
Te Reo is used frequently, as is French and Spanish, which we teach in the senior school. Students have enjoyed learning phrases and using a particular language to support their inquiries if researching countries/communities. We have been very happy with all that it offers. The support team are great, responding quickly to any issues and prompting our use if we are not making the most of the programme! Our students enjoy it. So do our Teachers! We have considered it a good investment.
Languagenut has been a invaluable resource, particularly for students who require general language acquisition. This is because it: utilises the student’s first language for instruction, supports further learning in the student’s first language (proven by research to benefit second language learning), promotes learning in each mode (listening, speaking, reading and writing), guides students with vocabulary and sentence structure, consolidates previous English learning, is accessible in a variety of settings with different teachers/parents, progress can be formatively assessed and further goals set, is suitable for students at any level of English language learning, allows the coordinator to manipulate the learner’s starting point and its rewards are motivating for students.
Our students look forward to their Languagenut learning (either with support or independently) and celebrate their successes with us. The staff at Languagenut have also been incredibly helpful and quick to answer any of my questions. It didn’t take long for me to learn how to use this resource and teach other teachers/parents. I will soon be talking with teachers at our Mid Canterbury ESOL Cluster meeting about the benefits of Languagenut.
I have been using this program for at least 8 years and enjoy the updates. It really forms a solid base for basic and then more complicated vocabulary, allowing the students to progress at their own rate.
We have a few pupils who are obviously incredibly keen on computer games and the thought of being on the front page of the website has really motivated them to practice. The school improved its world raking quickly and they went crazy when we got in the top 20. There is a real buzz amongst the pupils as they are really keen to stay in the top 20, are currently 13.
I have also created a lunch time club where pupils can come and learn another language. I have three doing Japanese, two doing Italian and a few others doing Spanish.
Languagenut is a great website which reinforces my teaching and the pupils’ learning, allowing them to practise their French independently. It also allows me the time within the ict lesson to go around the class and spend time with each of my pupils.
A great site and I would recommend to any primary Mfl teacher.
I have also noted an improvement in the acquisition of new words amongst the tamariki who already speak Māori.
Languagenut provides a fun and engaging way of learning language and is very popular with the tamariki. It also provides teachers with the ability to monitor their students progress, assign specific activities and celebrate their childrens learning with certificates.
I would highly recommend it as a means to learn te reo Māori.
As a language teacher for the whole school with over 500 students, I find Languagenut is easy to use for managing all classes, all students’ progress and generating the students’ reports.
Students are motivated by the points they get on Languagenut while practising what they have learned in class. Some of the children in our school can only have Chinese for one term a year. I assign homework regularly for these group of children through Languagenut so they can carry on practising what they have learnt. I think this is a great way to maintain what the students have learnt since language is very easy to lose if you don’t keep practising.
