This database contains projects that have received the European Language Label since 1999

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.

Experimental Bilingual Section
The project “Experimental Bilingual Section”, under the guidance of the Italian (L1) and German (L2) teachers, undertook the teaching of curricular subjects in a foreign language, with CLIL methodology. In fact, many subjects, including Geography, Science and Music Education, were taught in German. Students, who come largely from families in which the dominant language is Italian, had the opportunity to consolidate the development of their oral communication skills in German. During the whole process of testing, a particular emphasis was put on the phonological aspect and on the development of the receptive competences. The task of teaching was structured with only few moments of traditional lecture but with many laboratory activities.
