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!

Centres of excellence primary modern foreign languages project
Children in primary schools across Liverpool have been getting a head start in French, German and Spanish as part of this innovative primary languages project. The initiative aims to give teachers, nursery nurses and classroom assistants the skills they need to bring languages to life in their schools.
Advisory teachers and Foreign Language Assistants work with class teachers in participating schools to provide up to 90 minutes of language learning each week, with parents invited to learn alongside their children or join staff at weekly sessions. International links, advice, training and support combine to create the language classes, described by the judges as 'exemplary in pace, challenge and content'.
