European Language Label

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!

Top10 Favourites for the EU Teenagers

Our school has another chance and the pleasure to co-operate with many European schools, using not only the twin-space but also other websites for communication and publishing the team work / Blogger, Ning, Slideshare, Podomatic,…/ We started out with a simple task: to be serious, active and productive, as we used to be. But from the very beginning the students learned not only about ICT and new programmes, but also the value of good behaviour, patience and understanding. It was really a good practice for them to be serious but friendly, to respect team work, to assume responsibilities, to make decisions of their own, but most of all to prove that they are able to communicate easily in real time and to practice their English in the best way. We are very proud of our students' responsibility and productivity.
