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:

You can also combine up to all of these criteria to conduct a more focused search.

Label of the day
The Himalayas –the highest mountains in the world, the holy river of Ganges, the way of cultivating tea plants or putting on a sari are only a few themes among those offered to Early Stage school pupils. On top of that, owing to the cooperation with a Bombay-based organisation, they were able to become familiar with a different culture through contact with its native participants. This project is an example of combining language education and the acquisition of knowledge of a different culture through contact with foreign partners and through creative use of ICT applications. INDIA EXPRESS – an album composed of a CD with songs recorded by the pupils and their DVD-documented activities - is one of the project results.
