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!

mgsOnline: Musselburgh Grammar’s International Community
Students at Musselburgh Grammar School are at the cutting edge of international communications, thanks to this international project which brings together languages, citizenship and ICT.
International relations and languages are brought to life through a range of technologies, including weblogs and more recently podcasts, which allow subscribers to download audio files automatically. These and other resources are regularly accessed on-line by staff and students to help with teaching, homework and revision.
International links, trips abroad and the opportunity for virtual exchanges have had a positive impact on the take-up of languages in terms of students taking a second language in S3 and continuing in S4 and S5. Those involved have a more realistic idea of foreign cultures and a clearer understanding of the similarities between young people across the world.
