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:
■ Year of the award
■ Projects by country
■ Educational sector(s)
■ Pedagogical theme(s)
■ Target language(s) of the projects
You can also combine up to all of these criteria to conduct a more focused search.
Your query will generate a list of the projects and individuals that have been awarded Labels – just click on the names to learn more (contact details, etc.).
Enjoy your search!

Babaiola and Baballotti around the world
What can be better when planning work with such young pupils than the use of nursery rhymes, the animal world and painting and play activities? Just think: they started off with the study of certain characteristic aspects of animals and ended up with the study of cultural and intercultural identity. The special feature of this project is that it all starts with a nursery rhyme in Sardinian, translated into Italian and English. The pupils have also interviewed members of their families in search of new counting rhymes and nursery rhymes which run the risk of becoming forgotten. All this also has the purpose of retrieving their cultural identity and of learning respect for diversity.
