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!

Spanish language and culture training
This project is organised by the City of Nottingham LEA with the collaboration of Nottingham Trent University and the University of Salamanca (Spain). It provides opportunities both for trainee teachers of English from Spain to spend six weeks in Nottingham primary schools and for serving teachers in Nottingham primary schools to follow a two-year part-time course in Spanish and language-teaching methodology, plus a ten-day intensive course in Spain.
The aim is to provide a basis for the development of Spanish teaching in Nottingham primary schools - at present eight schools teach Spanish on an experimental basis. This project was part of the Good Practice Project within the DfES Early Language Learning initiative.
