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!

Making friends across the borders
This project is organised in all school years. In years 1 and 2 this is a class project, in year 3 pupils are working individually, and in year 4 they participate in a voluntary exchange. Students are working on concrete projects in a partnership with a Danish school. Much attention is paid to modern media and personal input. Moreover, functional English is perfectly embedded. Pupils are enthusiastic, because of the project’s concrete aims. The use of film improves language practice. Learning activities that are normally considered boring are no longer a problem. The jury is impressed by the fact that pupils are participating in the project in such a natural way. Another positive aspect to the project is the fact that it is being transferred to other classes and will also include German next year.
