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!

Modern Languages Pilot Project
The introduction fo a modern language (Italian, French, German and Spanish) to the higher primary level pupils in 264 schools. The aim of this project is to foster positive attitudes to language learning at an early age, to encourage communication in the four target languages, to establish co-ordination between language teaching at first and second levels. Other aims include to encourage diversification in the range of languages taught, and to enable a greater number of children in a wider range of school types to study modern languages in our primary schools.
