About Languages Made Easy
Languages Made Easy has been providing teachers language resources since 1996
Languages Made Easy has made its
popular language resources available to Australian, New Zealand and International Schools, with positive outcomes in the
classroom and reassuring feedback from many customers. Languages Made Easy products are used in thousands of primary schools
across Australasia. They are also used in International Schools in Australia and abroad.
Languages Made Easy products are in eight popular languages
There are five European (French, German, Greek, Italian
and Spanish) and three Asian (Chinese (Mandarin), Indonesian and Japanese) languages. Just six of these represent over 90%
of language teaching in all Australian schools. A number of products are also available in English language editions
to help with English as a Second Language (ESL) and Special Needs requirements.
Languages Made Easy was born in 1993
In the mid 1990s government policy required
schools to adopt language learning at primary level, yet there were no adequate resources. Many teachers found this very
difficult, even if they had a solid background in another language. The Languages Made Easy Practical Program series
was designed to meet Government policy, teachers' needs, limited classroom time and to keep children interested. The Practical
Program series is complemented by a range of audio products to help teachers provide authentic pronunciation models.
Blackline Masters are available to aid with language extension and consolidation and Classroom card Games
help make the learning process more fun and to encourage children to become more involved.
Languages Made Easy is the brainchild of Tommasina Rodrick
Tommasina is an early childhood trained teacher with
an Italian heritage and a background in Spanish. She is the creative talent behind Languages Made Easy. All Languages Made
Easy illustrations are by Greg Clift. Greg taught secondary level maths for many years. He combines his background in teaching
with artistic flair. Greg is from Wizzmedia, a high tech Australian teaching resource
company that has produced a number of maths programmes for export to the UK and North America. Languages Made Easy and Wizzmedia
are currently developing a series of multi media language products for Australian and international distribution.
