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!

Immersion in Dutch starting in the third nursery school year
The goal of the project is to make children highly bilingual by the sixth primary school year and perfectly bilingual by the time they finish secondary school.The children share two teachers on a half-time basis each, one francophone and the other Dutch-speaking.The activities are performed in both languages simultaneously and complement one another.Redundancies in both of the languages ensure that language skills are reinforced.The project was launched during the 2000-2001 school year in the third nursery school year and first primary school year.The project is being pedagogically supervised by the Inspectorate (Inspector Lardinois), the head of mission for the teaching of languages in basic education (Mr Palmer Haemers) and the Pedagogical Department of the University of Liège (Mrs Christiane Blondin)
