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.).

Post-16 French Debating Competition
This competition was organised by NICILT, Alliance Française Belfast, and the Department of Education in Northern Ireland. It was run in parallel with a debating competition organised by the Alliance Française Dublin for schools in the Republic of Ireland. It was run as a pilot project in Northern Ireland involving ten schools from all five education and library boards.
The project targeted pupils in the 16-18 range. The topics chosen for the debates linked in with pupils' A-level French studies. The competition ran from November 1999 to March 2000. The winning team from Northern Ireland went into the final of the competition being held in the Republic of Ireland. This all-Ireland final took place on 6 May 2000 in Dublin.
