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.
Your query will generate a list of the projects and individuals that have been awarded Labels – just click on the names to learn more (contact details, etc.).
Enjoy your search!
Label of the day
Groups of pupils use their knowledge of foreign language – currently English only, in the future German as well – when in contact with pupils from other European countries. This project started as the result of a teacher’s discovery that it is profitable for students to communicate through internet with the people they will be taking an abroad internship with, acting on their own initiative. The results she observed were so significant that she decided to establish an electronic learning environment. The project has obtained a European dimension: the learning environment is also being developed by Finnish and Icelandic partners. The members of the jury were impressed by the pupils’ language proficiency and their teacher’s input. As the project is still running, the jury decided to award this project with an incentive prize.
