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

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

Language lessons outside classroom
The project aimed at providing different opportunities for practical acquisition of Russian and at raising the interest in the Russian language and culture, geography, traditions. Pupils chose themes and places connected to the themes, collect materials and prepare for presentations. The most popular among pupils was the lesson called Kuressaare by Night. The lesson started at 10.00 pm, pupils stopped in every chosen place in the town to describe the place and introduce historical background using posters with collected materials. The posters were put on stands next day to be seen by everybody at school. All lessons outside the classroom were videotaped.
