The database aims to inspire practitioners, stakeholders and policymakers by presenting "best practices" in the field of

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

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