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.

The European Portfolio of Languages (EPL) as an Instrument of Self-Study and Self-Assessment
The project applies the European Portfolio of Languages (PEL) as an instrument of self-study and self-assessment. The key aspect of the project is the use of the portfolio to help students monitor the competencies they have achieved, to improve their study methods, and refine their own learning style, but, above all, as an instrument to encourage students to take an active part in their learning progress. The teaching methodology has changed to follow the development of PEL, with the programming of curricular and integrative activities connected not only to foreign languages but also to other subjects. The classes involved have participated with great interest, and all the students have worked to improve their communication skills.
