Welcome to the ELL database for innovative projects in language teaching and learning.
This database contains projects that have received the European Language Label since 1999
(for the pilot phase 1998-99, please refer to "The European Label:
catalogue of projects 1998-99").
The database aims to inspire practitioners, stakeholders and policymakers by presenting "best practices" in the field of
language teaching and learning.
The European Language Label is awarded to local, regional, and national projects that have found creative ways to improve
the quality of language teaching, motivate students, make the best use of available resources to diversify the languages
on offer, and other innovative initiatives.
You can search the database according to a number of different criteria:

You can also combine up to all of these criteria to conduct a more focused search.

The Label project tackles the problem of learning disabilities and dyslexia among young people. The aim of the project was to detect students with special needs in learning foreign languages, and finding solutions to their specific difficulties in order to prevent the social exclusion of such students. The project sought to achieve these goals by taking advantage of the achievements in brain research, taking feelings into consideration in the learning process, emphasising the importance of having a healthy self-esteem, and by creating new learning materials (e.g. an illustrated grammar). The project monitored students throughout the upper secondary school and it was implemented without any additional funding, which shows admirable dedication and initiative from its coordinators.
