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!

Primary School with Multilingual Focus
One of the main tasks of this school (ages: 6-10) is to familiarise children from the start of primary education with other countries and cultures. More intensive foreign-language teaching as early as primary school will make a significant contribution to ensuring that children respond positively to previously unfamiliar nations and are prepared for their future lives in a multicultural world. In addition to English teaching (from the third grade), the school's approach also covers French (on an experimental basis from the first grade in short units of 5-10 minutes throughout the week, comprising 1 hour a week), Italian (from the third grade for gifted pupils), non-verbal communication and Austrian sign language.
