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!
Label of the day
We wanted to create real communication situations for our students therefore in 2003 we contacted the nearby university in Lund and presented our idea about inviting exchange students and international students who study at the university to come to our “Language Cafés” . These Language Cafés have been a great success both our own students who learn languages and the students who come from abroad enjoy them. Each language (French, Spanish and German) has its own language café twice a term. The students prepare topics to talk about but after a while they find more things to talk about. They even see each other during their free time.
