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!

Outstanding Contribution to Language Learning
Every year our judging panel receives applications from excellent, innovative projects which are working hard to promote language learning. However, one institution stands out for consistently delivering projects which take language learning one step beyond. That’s why this year we are presenting the first ever European Award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Language Learning’ to the Open University.
The Open University has brought six projects to our attention in the last three years alone - including last year’s OpenLearn project, which was highly commended by our judges. The projects all demonstrate new ways of sharing resources and are evidence of the Open University’s absolute dedication to broadening participation in language learning.
The OU is to be commended for its use of new technologies to make language learning both easy and engaging for distance learners. New project
