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

Label of the day
Professionalisation of Primary School Teachers/DaF
The aim of this project is the development of a job-related language course for German as a foreign language for primary school teachers, including the design of corresponding modules for teacher training. A special emphasis is laid on the very persuasive material, diligently and specifically compiled for certain addressees, allowing a transfer to French and English languages. The application of an individual portfolio for the learner’s own reflection is also a commendable aspect of the project. This ideally enhances the participants’ personal responsibility for their learning progress. The material is used in various European countries, mainly in middle- and Eastern Europe; partial results have already been evaluated. The education material is available to interested parties on the internet under www.goethe.de/lehrererzaehlen.
