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:

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

Manage Your Own Learning with a Learning Portfolio
In this project teachers in secondary education learn how to deal with the evaluation of autonomous learning (e.g. in the framework of Guided Independent Learning, Free Space and Project work). The aims are to provide them the didactic resources by which learners can recognize their starting level and acknowledge their strengths and weaknesses. Next to this to learn the teachers how to set up an action plan by which the pupils try to improve their strengths and weaknesses and that helps pupils to present evidence to the teacher that show their individual and independent progress.
The jury appreciates this project because of its work according to European frameworks, its process-and product evaluation and its offer of opportunities to weak language learners.
