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.

Bringing children towards a multilingual and multicultural Europe
This language-learning project for very young students from Zafferana Etnea is a cultural initiative involving the entire community of Zafferana, the Europaschule of Vienna and the JNS of Eindhoven in Holland. The study of foreign languages becomes an occasion to get to know others, to learn more about different cultures, and increase the awareness of belonging to a shared citizenship of Europe. The Italian, Austrian and Dutch children, and the adults involved in this project, use cultural exchange as a means for personal growth, and the comparative study of foreign languages as a way to better understand the way of life of other peoples, and thus build friendship and peace.
