In order to make multi-level teaching easier we use the software in all of our rooms for listening and speaking activities.  The activities are taken from a variety of different textbooks and things we have made ourselves.  We have made good use of the student pronunciation software, in particular with the less able classes.

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.

Exam boards will still issue the material on the day of the exam on CD or in some cases as MP3 download, and making the recordings available to students via the Study 1200 is easy, secure and allows the candidates to use bookmark functions to repeat certain sections of the recording comfortably, and above all, with the result that they are saving time.

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.

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.

Using the Sanako Lab 100 system and Sanako Study Lite have been fantastic ways to develop our pupils' listening skills. They respond very well to being in control of their own learning, being able to work at their own pace and bookmarking vocabulary with which they, as individuals, require support. In addition to this, the Customer Service offered by Sanako is second to none. I am delighted that my Modern Language Department have access to Sanako and would recommend it to other Modern Language teachers.

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

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.

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 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.

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).

Kingswood School pupils are really enjoying and benefiting from the many useful functions of the SANAKO Study 1200 system. With the current changes in language teaching on improved pronunciation, the high quality recording and paired speaking features of the system allow pupils, with discreet teacher support, to enhance the authenticity of their accents in the foreign language being spoken. Teachers can give pupils bespoke feedback and pupils can try to mimic native speaker models.

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!
