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.

English for workers
The main objective of the project is “the language training of workers to enable them to become citizens of the world”. There are very many businesses in the Veneto region that have foreign trade relations or intend to set them up, and it is thus ever more necessary for the workers in the various sectors to develop their powers of communication as much as possible, preferably by following modular teaching which can easily be adapted to their particular work sector and to the different start levels. The project includes meetings with mother-tongue teachers, stays abroad, simulation, the use of drama to develop role play dynamics, and membership of a club where the workers can meet and exchange views.
