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!
Label of the day
Word of the Day
This project is the initiative of a single individual who provides subscribers with a daily e-mail to improve their Spanish, based around a single word. The project also consists of a website (www.spanishlanguage.co.uk) where each week exercises are published to help students make use of these words. The idea is to make wide use of the seven words learnt during the period of seven days. Students can also practise their pronunciation and use the links to access other websites which will help them improve their skills.
There are nearly 400 subscribers from all over the world who use this method of extending their vocabulary and keeping their Spanish active. An evaluation has shown that there is a very high retention rate of the words learnt.
