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
Lingueo is a commercial website where the users can learn any language by videoconference, be it a foreign or regional language or even sign language. All that the user needs is a webcam and microphone as there is no software to download.
The novelty of this site comes from the learning methods. The learner selects a tutor from the database based on their similarities. Video courses on the everyday vocabulary and expressions can be found on the website. The quality of the course is rated by the learner by grades and comments. The website included courses on sign language in order to break the seclusion of hard of hearing people.
