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.

Language and environment
The project is about getting to know cultural, historical and linguistic differences and similarities through environmental activities of Rakvere Gymnasium in Estonia and Sauerbruch Gymnasium in Germany. During the school visits pupils visited a number of institutions and organisations dealing with environmental issues such as water and waste.The practical tasks such as measuring water level, cleanness etc and the comparison of the information were used for analyses, presentations which were translated into the target languages.
The German students while visiting Estonia took an intensive course of Russian and Estonian.
They also visited St Peterbourg and had a tour in Estonia.
