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
Oxford Primary Teachers' Academy (OPTA)
The main goal of the project is to provide methodical support for unqualified teachers or for those who have been started his/her teaching. OPTA is a series of seven ‘basic’ seminars and 15 ‘elective’ ones organised in the whole country. The series is accredited by the Ministry of Education. In the seminars the participants ‘learn by doing’ – e.g. in a very practical way they try out the procedures recommended for presenting and practising new language and developing the language skills.
