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
Essential British Sign Language for Successful Health Care
This project has produced a CD-ROM which contains photo and video presentations of healthcare-related language, along with practice and test materials.
Essential to the project is the collaboration of the training providers with the language specialists, resulting in training tailored to the needs of healthcare workers. In addition to improved language skills and the ability to understand their patients, trainees have greater self-confidence and feel they are able to provide a higher level of healthcare with language skills relevant to their workplace.
