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
This project is intended for beat and traffic police officers, for whom the ability to communicate intelligibly in a foreign language can be a great help. This course is designed to help prevent situations where a third party must help out in dealing with ordinary situations, or cases where police rather ignore a problem or a trivial situation spirals out of control due to misunderstanding. The result of the project is a set of multimedia textbooks in English, German, Russian and Romany, which in the long-term should help contribute to improving communication between police officers and foreigners and minorities. The textbooks focus particularly on specialised terms and practising concrete situations – for example communicating with tourists, dealing with a theft, traffic checks, misdemeanours and issuing a fine.
