Sanako has improved language learning at the following Schools, Colleges and Universities

SIR-JOHN-DEANES-COLLEGE

Sir John Deane’s College

Here at Sir John Deane’s College we thoroughly enjoy using the Sanako Study 1200 to enrich our students’ language lessons. They really benefit from the wide range of speaking and listening activities available, especially when they have the chance to work in small groups and receive detailed teacher feedback ‘on the spot.’ We also find that the use of the playlist enables us to provide annotated versions of reading papers to our students electronically, cutting down on the amount of class time required for such activities and allowing them to become independent learners.  We would highly recommend Sanako systems to other schools and colleges'

We have the Sanako Study 1200 and have been very impressed with its potential in second language teaching and learning. Our tutors have been designing a range of new and stimulating activities with the Sanako system, which have been very well received by our students. We are also very pleased with the level of support we get from the company and fully recommend its purchase.

This is a significant investment into new technology that will dramatically enhance the learning experience of our students. The new lab has exciting digital tools, which will keep our learners motivated. We’ve already had a fantastic response from students, who seem to be reaping the rewards of their new environment. We’re keen to provide our learners with the highest quality facilities to bring out the very best in them, so we’re really proud of the new lab.

The Language Lab is an excellent motivational tool as the students enjoy using the software and the activities are easy to set up. Students are sometimes too embarrassed to admit they don't understand something in front of the whole class. In the Language Lab, they can call the teacher and talk to you without anyone else realising.  Using Study 1200 is second nature to the students. Technology like this is simply part of their everyday lives.

Since the installation of our state of the art Language lab, our GCSE students have much more confidence when preparing for Controlled Speaking Assessments and Listening exams in MFL. I have been really impressed by both the positive impact on student learning, since our acquisition of the Study 1200, as well as the friendly, professional after sales service. The versatility of the Study 1200 is amazing and you can really see the confidence and enthusiasm that students of any Key Stage develop in their language when using this excellent twenty first century equipment. Students begin to actually feel that they can start to master speaking and understanding a foreign language.

Vocab tests are really easy to create and the kids really like the instant result. Voice insert is also super useful for speaking exam practice (I can pre-record all the potential questions for all levels) and this is really the feature that was not possible with the old Tandberg language lab. Creating playlists is also great as students can choose between different activities.

Pupils’ oral fluency has improved as they now have more opportunities to deliver presentations, answer the teacher’s questions and interact with each other. Colleagues have welcomed the opportunity to set and assess oral work alongside the more traditional written work – and some colleagues have been recording their own oral feedback onto the pupils’ work using the Voice Insert tool. The Sanako software offers our pupils the chance to be actively involved in their language lessons, and to feel that they are getting individual feedback on their efforts (either in real time or subsequently).

As a Network Manager asked to install and support a major facility such as a Language Lab the most important criteria is Support, Support and again Support. Sanako have never failed in this respect and have consistently delivered rapid responses to any issues we have had along the way,  and more importantly have always volunteered to come on site if necessary to rectify issues. Sanako are unflinching in their support of the product and are always willing to go the extra mile to solve any  issues and replies quickly to any problems. I have nothing but praise for the Company,  and as I deal with many other Software Products I can only recommend it from my particular point of view and not for Educational Reasons which my fellow Teacher has done already. She is our Head of Languages and has also wrote a glowing review,  so all I can say is that it is a fantastic all round package and I am not being paid to say this!

The Support Team’s technical knowledge of Sanako products is vast and they are able to tap into that knowledge to disseminate information to us, as the customer. The Sanako Team are extremely courteous and approachable; we found the pre-sales support and technical planning invaluable in the feasibility of installing a new language lab.

We have used the Sanako Study 1200 for the last five years and it has become an essential element of our language lessons at King’s Ely. This is a powerful piece of software that allows true learning independence in our pupils and the development of speaking and listening skills at once. The versatility of this product is what makes it truly unique without mentioning the fantastic support the school gets from Sanako. This is a great product that all MFL departments should have access to.

The Study 1200 Language Centre has been particularly useful for preparing students for A Level listening exams. They are now able to do their listening independently, as in the exam. Random pairwork is invaluable for developing spontaneity and fluency and the ability to record and listen to conversations allows us to assess progress and give advice. By controlling the screens of individual students we can give feedback on written work very efficiently in class. The Web Browser function enables us to limit student access to the individual site that we want them to study. We would recommend Sanako systems for enhancing the variety of student learning.

The teaching of MFL in 21st Century should centre on ICT as an integral part of the learning and teaching process, after all today’s students live in a world of ICT. Existing materials can be digitised and fully exploited with this system adding new and relevant resources in a variety of media. YouTube and BBC video clips can be sourced to ensure we, as practitioners, keep the topics fresh and current. The ability to provide high quality and meaningful homework tasks using the Study Lite Recorder is highly advantageous in terms of pupil engagement and performance

Instead of spending three periods listening to presentations we can record them in under ten minutes for a class of 30 which allows us to do more learning and teaching.  Our senior pupils are accessing listening materials and we are able to pinpoint exactly where they are having difficulties and provide them with better support. This resource is having an extremely positive impact on our staff and pupil and the Sanako team are extremely helpful when we contact them with any queries.
