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!

Intensive Education Slash 21: Lower Forms from 2 to 12 Weeks
Marianum has adopted an entirely new set-up that breaks with traditional structures. This intensive way in which children in primary education are working with foreign languages, with regard to their age, is very effective. It is likely to be more effective than the regular two hours of language education. Pupils are divided into groups of 50, for English, German and French. A set team of supervisors is assigned to each group, of which a teacher and a native speaker. Thus, one can speak of task differentiation. Pupils take part individually by means of web quests. Parents have remarked that children participating in this project are able to speak more freely, than their older siblings.
