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!

Bunachar Logainmneacha na hÉireann: Placenames Database of Ireland
The logainm.ie project (2007-2010)
was initiated by Fiontar, Dublin City
University’s Irish-medium teaching and
research unit, in collaboration with the
Placenames Branch of the Department of
Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs,
who also part-funded the project.
The principal objective of Phase I of the
project was to make Irish placenames that
had been approved by the Placenames
Branch, available through the internet.
The outcomes of the project will increase
access to language learning and teaching
resources related to Irish placenames among
the general public, and has provided a database
management system for the staff of the
Placenames Branch. Educational resources,
mapping tools and sound fi les were developed
and added to the website during Phase II.
The Logainm.ie resource can be used
by educators, learners, those involved
in research, linguists, the media
