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 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.

Immersion in English
The Sainte Véronique et Marie José College in Liège offers a bilingual English-French learning option from the first year of secondary school onwards. This project is informed by the philosophy of 'lifelong learning', the chief pedagogic goal being to 'learn how to learn'; the learner is at the centre of the project.
