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.

Enjoy your search!
Label of the day
More English, more computer science
The project, targeting primary school pupils, aimed to integrate and promote the learning of English, Italian and IT through the management of the school’s blog and the production of hypertexts. All this was made possible by increasing the students' eagerness to learn and speak English, to discover and develop their own and others' culture especially through the acquisition of the concept of "European citizenship". With the help and support of the teachers, students posted on the blog "noieilmondo.blogspot.com" comments in English on the most important events of the school, using word processing and digital dictionary, but also adding audio commentary in English. "Bloggers" pupils have also written detailed articles in Italian and used the blog to keep active contacts with foreign schools, partners in the Comenius project.
