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!

Sport is Fun!
The students form College Cousteau in Brittany discovered a new way to learn English: by practicing sports. The students from Year 9 and 10 can join a European class (optional). The motivations of the students as well as their appeal to the English language are the main criteria of selection. These students discover the language and the English culture by practicing sports. During the whole school year, the students are shown new sports: Gaelic football, baseball, cricket, indoor hockey, golf, badminton, climbing. They are helped by their sport teacher as well as their English teacher and the librarian of the school. Meetings and exchanges are organized between the students of College Cousteau and English pupils such as a journey in the Isle of Wight or golf training on Jersey.
