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

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

Dealing with Logistics
Pupils work in English on an economics and logistics project. A German manual for euro-calculators is to be translated into English. They also order, transport and sell the product in English. The jury considered the project to be a structural renewal. "It is interesting to see that the project is monitored by three teachers: two subject specific teachers and an English teacher.” During the whole project the target language is the language of communication. This means a thorough training in productive skills. "A very good example of attractive, modern and effective language education. Completely according to current insights into didactics and language acquisition", according to the jury. "It is lifelike, functional, content-directed and because of the integrated working method it is extremely efficient."
