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.

Breakfast Italian in Gosforth
Approximately thirty students from each of the three middle schools learn Italian after having breakfast. Classes are held twice a week and are taught by well-qualified and experienced staff. They have breakfast at 07.45 and then lessons from 08.10-08.45, i.e. before a normal school day. All students are in Year 6. The objective of the project is to encourage students to start a second language. The intention is that they will take GCSE Italian earlier than normal.
