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!

Peripatetic Teaching of Foreign Languages in Rural Schools
"Peripatetic Teaching of Foreign Languages in Rural Schools" has been introduced in one sector of the district of Hirson with a view to establishing a long-term and effective language project in a rural area. The rural environment calls for a creative approach. In fact, the most common venues for the classes are a room in the town hall, a multipurpose hall and even an exhibition room; the lack of suitable material creates situations which encourage people to speak out and develop their own material. The courses largely focus on communication through games, learning tools and subjects with which the children are already familiar, while still seeking to enter the world of the foreign language.
