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.

MFL in a Visual, Auditory & Kinaesthetic Way
The project puts an emphasis on different learning styles to improve teaching of French and German to Years 7 to 11, so that each pupil can learn more effectively. This is especially important for those pupils whose learning style is not catered for. The project was started in the 1996/97 academic session. A key objective of the project is to enable pupils who do not normally do well to achieve more (especially boys). The school has seen a huge improvement in GCSE examination results from 32-33% grades A-C in 1997 to 65-66% in 1999.
