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
Easy Spanish was conceived as a family learning experience in which the teaching of Spanish engages the whole family unit from pre-fives, to older siblings, parents and grandparents. Parents learn Spanish side by side with their child through a variety of fun activities, such as role play, song, dance, games and arts and crafts. It promotes an appreciation of Spanish language and culture across the different age groups.
There is a strong cultural component in the teaching in order to engage learners who might be left cold by more formal learning methods and to bring the language to life. There is also a well established website with on-line support materials. Underpinning the whole project is the recognition that a child who acquires language skills in the first years of life has laid the foundations for lifelong language learning.
