The UK's number 1 Primary French programme
Welcome to Rigolo, three-star winner of the Teach Primary Resource Awards 2018! With Rigolo, you can follow the amazing adventures of Jake, Polly and Bof as they discover France through lively interactions and colourful stories.
The Rigolo programme was previously a combination of print books and DVD-ROMs, but is now being rereleased as a digital subscription in Spring 2021. The digital version will have the same great support and content, including the Virtual Teacher videos.
Sign up to hear as soon it becomes available! You'll also be able to request a free demo.

"A well-constructed resource which is of particular benefit for the non-specialist primary teacher and is very suitable for primary-aged pupils...[it] is underpinned by a sound understanding of primary MFL pedagogy including a strong focus on pronunciation (via the CD-Rom), songs to aid memorisation, inclusion of cultural insights, light-touch focus on grammar, links to literacy and oracy etc."
Anna Lise Gordon, President of Association for Language Learning, and judge for the Teach Primary Resource Awards 2018 modern foreign languages category
“I first learnt French a long time ago at school… and I can order a beer and a ham sandwich, but beyond that I am not a French speaker… The Virtual teacher is just brilliant! It takes a lot of fear out of teaching French”.
Jane Tromans, MFL Co-ordinator, Kates Hill Community Primary School, Dudley
“Rigolo French provides teachers with a vast amount of material. The interactive resources are exceptional but this is far more than simply a good whiteboard CD-ROM; it’s packed with ideas for pairs, groups, as well as starters and plenaries for whole-class teaching”.
Karen Sully, Fowey Primary School, Cornwall
These flash cards integrate fully with the Rigolo 1 CD Rom and feature many of the charming and vibrant Rigolo characters that you and your students will quickly come to know and love.
