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!
Label of the day
Language learning and teaching through interactive competition called The Golden Mouth. The competition had 3 levels:
1. Selection level open to all-Estonian participation and based on an on-line debate on a given theme which was a proverb; lasted 5 days
2. 14 candidates from the 1st level met and within 2 days had the opportunity to debate on a given and prepared theme;
3. 2 candidates of the 14 met for 2 hours and had to debate on an unprepared theme.
Competitions trace back to 1999 and used to be a school internal event. It has grown to an interactive all-Estonian event and is being organised annually. The format can be used for any language or languages.
