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:

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

An Seomra Ranga Ilteangach/The Multilingual Classroom
The Junior Infants class undertook a full school year completely
through Irish. It is a multicultural class, with parents from
France, India, Spain and China. Everything was going well
in Irish – so then the teachers thoughts, what about the other languages?
They started learning different languages through music and
drama. The pupils enjoyed it very much, and had lots of fun
making displays at assembly on Fridays.
The next challenge: Spring was arriving and so it was decided to learn all about it in Spanish, in Catalan and in German. The best thing about it was
that all this learning-learning was happening through Irish.
Teachers and parents established a language team:
Natalie (German), Liz and Eva (Spanish), Susan (Irish) and
Bianca (ICT support). They decided on a simple vocabulary
for the different topics: birds, the sun, trees, flowers, the spring and rainbows.
