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.

You can also combine up to all of these criteria to conduct a more focused search.

The Bridge: Towards New Teaching Methods
This project, which is intended as an aid to the study of German, is based on the links between certain areas in the fields of the history of art and of foreign languages, and in particular between the pictorial and literary production of the second half of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century. There is clear reference here to the German avant-garde artistic movement of the beginning of the twentieth century known as "The Bridge". And in fact the project aims at acting as a «bridge» towards an untraditional way of teaching and towards fields of enquiry, such as the cinema and music, which are not often utilized in schools.
