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:

You can also combine up to all of these criteria to conduct a more focused search.

Science in French
The aim of this project is to draw attention to the possibility of using a foreign language, in this case French, in the study of subjects of a scientific nature with a view to broadening the students' powers of communication and furthering acceptance of cultural differences and of a readiness to compare ideas, not forgetting here the European dimension. This objective may also be achieved by the presentation of a syllabus subject in a language other than one's own. In so doing, furthermore, it is possible to demonstrate the «oneness of science», to further the acquisition of communicative skills which meet the needs of a multicultural and globalized society, and to allow a comparison between different realities.To demonstrate all the above the students and their teachers have produced an interesting video on volcanism which forms part of this project.
