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

Virtual Tour to Paris
This project is aimed at improving French. Students created a trip to Paris. They had to use the Internet and find information about accommodation, monuments, restaurants, entertainment and other information about Paris. They had to plan all details about the trip. This was a good way of raising not only practical knowledge for everyday communication as well as the culture of the foreign country. Students have learned for example how to go there, how to reserve a hotel and how to guide a tour. The final output of their work was a presentation of their trips. They were professionally led. The project is very useful and transferable (to other languages, other places). Students find the learning French language easy. This type of language learning should be practised in all schools.
