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!

English for Science: A Healthy Diet
The Institute works in areas boasting a unique historical, archaeological, and environmental heritage. There is a marked desire among residents to extend their cultural and economic identity to the European scale, and to enable this, language skills are essential. Therefore it has become necessary to create real opportunities to learn English, and this has been realised through a collaboration between teachers of English and Science. In a course on good eating habits, the scientific terms used have been presented in English. Through this course, and through periods of work experience in Great Britain, cultural exchanges and participation in international exhibitions, students learn to feel that they are true Europeans.
