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.

Nepenmäki comprehensive school
What a joy to learn languages and cultures: Pupil-driven diversification of language learning. Goal-oriented, long-time project to enhance language learning in the town of Joensuu (Eastern Finland). After 6 years of work, the data shows that the variation of languages studied and numbers of pupils taking languages has risen dramatically, especially in the case of A2 (optional) languages. Results have been achieved by developing the school culture in cooperation with e.g. teachers, pupils and parents, other schools in the area, as well as the university and polytechnic.
