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:

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

German class differently/Deutschunterricht mal anders
The e-Twinning project “Deutschunterricht mal anders” had the main goal of introducing students to the use of computer in the learning of the foreign language both at home and in the school. To do this, the students were introduced to the e-Twinning platform and to its ICT tools, and then, after familiarising with the use of computers, they started describing the territory of their region (Friuli-Venezia Giulia) to their German and Greek partners, with the help of the German teacher.
The last phase of the project saw the creation of an electronic magazine in German, which served as support to various activities.
The main goals achieved by the project were: linguistic, with the improvement of the German, communicative, thanks to the use of the computer, and social, focusing on some current issues that concern our society.
