This database contains projects that have received the European Language Label since 1999

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.

Treasures and Secrets of Our Forests
This project, which came about in cooperation with a similarly focused Norwegian school, aimed to increase students' interest in the forest environment and also to expand their knowledge. In the Czech Republic and in Norway students of both schools compared forest conservation and care, monitored the condition of forests and studied both flora and fauna. Students of the Lanškroun school searched for assigned plants in the Sázava valley protected area, translated their names, identified them and classified them. In Norway they completed similar tasks and the result was an atlas of plants and animals entitled "Fauna and Flora of Local and Norwegian Forests" with commentary in four languages. Also part of the atlas is a basic glossary of technical terms.
