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:

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

The Ste. Marie Primary School
This project involved pupils aged five to twelve years, the head teacher, permanent staff and specialist teachers at the Ste. Marie Primary School. For a whole year school activities focused on art. Children researched and discovered art, visited art galleries and museums, and met up with artists. All curriculum subjects were involved, in particular Dutch, which is taught early in the school. In addition to the cultural aspects such as the study of Flemish painters, meetings with contemporary artists or a visit to the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam, language learning as such was stimulated by an approach combining art, culture and linguistics. Vocabulary was put to practical use during these cultural excursions and art work. The initiative was climaxed by an exhibition of paintings and activities.
