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

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.

So Far, So Close
The Comenius project "So Far, So Close" focused on learning different European languages but targeting the Italian and English languages as well as the local culture, traditions and practices. The project has also offered the opportunity to introduce the Estonian language and culture to the project partners. The target group were pupils aged 13-15. They composed dialogues, thematic voiced dictionaries and participated in video-chats. The outcomes of the project included also videos about the schools, various slideshows and presentations in the three languages: Estonian, Italian and English.
