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.

L'avare De Filey (Filey School, North Yorkshire)
This remarkable project sees Year 9 students draw inspiration and enthusiasm for French from the work of Moliere. They work on the text of L'avare, research the life and times of the author and use what they have learnt to take a scene from the play and while retaining the characters, adapt the script to include elements from a speaking assessment. Using the language, skills and techniques developed in their work on the play, the students wrote and recorded a presentation in French about themselves.
The project improved student confidence, performance and enthusiasm. All students performed beyond their target GCSE grades and there has been an increase in the number of students opting for French at GCSE.
