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!

Language Get Together
As part of the language courses in the integration project for Belgian and foreign job seekers, a "Language Get Together" is organised once a month: an excursion is organised in the target language of the participants. It may be a city trip with a guided tour in the target language, a museum visit or a walk with orientation assistance in the language studied. Participants have to be able to express themselves and react in the other language in accordance with the situation. The aims are to enable participants to use their language knowledge in a practical and realistic way, increase their interest and motivation with concrete situations and instil in them an understanding and tolerance of the other culture.
