What is Learning Village?

The Learning Village is an award-winning blended EAL school programme. It supports induction to English, gap-filling and pre-teaching of vocabulary and language structures, for independent learning, small-group teaching and differentiation in class.

With its immersive image-based methodology, making image the language of instruction, the Learning Village is suitable for learners of any language. It is ideal for those who are not yet literate or who have a SEND need.

The programme is divided into two parts: The Village, for learners aged 6 to 12 years, and The Islands, for learners aged 12 to 16 years.

Requirements

The Learning Village works best when using Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge. It will work on other browsers too, but not optimally. The Learning Village learner experience is a webapp. That means that it is not available in the App Store, but the learner experience behaves like an app. The Learning Village Student Area is iPad-friendly. Please make sure you are running up-to-date software (iOS11 and above), as older versions do not support recording.

Nov 2021

Using the Learning Village has a great impact on children learning English as a second language. It offers a wide variety of topics, grammar and vocabulary and it enhances things they have learned in the EAL sessions. It's a programme that can be used in the classroom as well as at home where children can work independently. It gives them a good sense of self-responsibilty for their learning. Above all, it makes learning English FUN!

We are looking forward to some more challenging content for Middle school.

Bindu Grover found Learning Village:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    When we've used Learning Village for our Absolute Beginners we have seen significant progress in vocabulary and language acquisition. The progressive pathway for lessons helps ensure the students consolidate a concept before moving ahead.
  • Slightly increases student collaboration
    Putting students together into teams for tasks
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    The learn adaptability to use inbuilt Translanguaging tool and structured lessons are extremely beneficial for an upward impact on attainment gap.
  • Significantly provides school data
    We analyse the students language strengths and areas of development based on the reports available. We also use the data to plan the support for our students.

Learning Village regularly updates the programme with new resources and useful webinars for teachers. In addition, the friendly team are always on hand to help. The learners love it and so do teachers. We are very impressed and would give it 11 out of 10!

Jane de Noord found Learning Village:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Children with very little or no English soon acquire enough language to participate in class lessons.
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    Pre-teaching vocabulary with Learning Village builds confidence enabling children to communicate with their peers and contribute to discussions. The listen repeat, record function is a very useful tool which appeals to learners.
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    If learners cannot speak the language of instruction, they cannot follow the curriculum. They have come to a new school in a different culture, where the sights and sounds are strange and often frightening for younger children. The Learning Village is easy to understand and navigate and has the advantage of teaching English while introducing curricular topics.
  • Moderately provides school data
    Tracking the progress of learners throughout the school year is important.

Teaching EAL is challenging as there is no curriculum and no plan to follow. It is also a very isolated role within he school. LV provides everything you need, a plan, assessments, practice and lots of tools to adjust any teaching materials to suit your students need. And there is always something more you have not yet explored

Lenka Bayman found Learning Village:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    I like different aspects, accessing curriculum, phonics and useful tools for newly arrived .
  • Slightly increases student collaboration
    Playing games
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    I had students from Arabic speaking countries that found Latin alphabet very difficult and without that were lost in the class. Learning phonics on LV helped to speed up the inclusion.
  • Slightly provides school data

Learning Village is a fabulous resource. Students can use it on their own with minimal staff input and they enjoy doing so. The resources provide us with differentiation and support for our non EAL students who struggle as well. The support from the company is unbelievable. Every question is answered with patience and speedily dealt with

Ruthanne Sireling found Learning Village:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Pupils who came from abroad were able to use this programme at home as well as in school instead of the regular English lessons and the subject specific vocabulary enabled them to access the subjects
  • Slightly increases student collaboration
    Not really. We use it one to one
  • Slightly reduces attainment gap
    We have to few EAL students to be able to answer this

Yes I deliver LV with passion and I believe in the programme and see that throughout the years of using LV has made a huge impact on me and the children. The visuals have supported the children’s learning too. I also feel Caroline and Simon have worked extremely hard to make this programme work fr everyone and adapted to all abilities of children.

Ragini Patel found Learning Village:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    A child from Romania no English now is able to construct some sentences independently.
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    Yes I teach in small groups and this helps gain confidence of each child and the wiliness to answer questions and be comfortable
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    Many children in our school come to the school without little or no English at all. Once they have used LV you find they are gaining confidence in speaking and gradually gain writing skills.

The Learning Village is a fantastic resource as it is a teaching tool and a learning aid. It supports the teacher through a vast amount of resources and guidance, and the children through survival language, phonics and topical themes via audio, visual and S&L games.

Sarah found Learning Village:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    The children progress at an accelerated pace, 5 terms in 3, allowing them to close the gap between their peers and perform alongside them.
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    The children's fluency and accuracy increase rapidly through the use of flashcards game and competitions, which allows them to communicate in more detail and work in groups being able to take turns, share and solve problems.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    The children progress 5 terms over 3. So, the longer they are with us the smaller the attainment gap becomes.
  • Significantly provides school data
    When the children are new to English they are unable to access the curriculum so cannot be assessed against it. The Learning Village provides data and trackers which enables us to see what skills the children have learnt and need to learn, also what proficiency stage they are at.
