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

■ 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.

From Zero 2 Zero - The European in All of Us
The project involved six different schools from across Europe and addressed, through the innovative use of ICT and creative literacy, topics such as: active European citizenship, linguistic competence and cultural diversity. By increasing the participants’ knowledge of European cultures and diversity within Europe, the project aimed at improving, in students and staff, the knowledge and understanding of what it truly means to be a European Citizen. The innovative language activities were aimed at improving the students’ linguistic competence. The partnership put into practice new organisational and pedagogical approaches and involved also cooperation with the local community of the school (local authorities and social services). This project has increased the pupils’ motivation towards English and the future contacts with mates from other European countries.
