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

Learning Europe Together
The aim of the project is to develop language skills and intercultural understanding among students through participation in work involving three European secondary schools, one in Germany, one in Scotland and one in Denmark. Languages, such as English and German, are used as instruments in this cooperation and language skills are developed in the work processes. Each school prepared presentations of their regions for the partner schools with regard to tourism, trade and industry, infrastructure etc.
A common assignment was the production of a newspaper with students in the roles of editors, journalists, reporters etc., the idea being the exchange of cross-cultural views on topics of current interest.
