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.

Distance learning of German as a second foreign language
The five rural schools involved in this project had to introduce distance learning of German as a second foreign language for third-year pupils in order to meet a demand for a subject which had not been taught until that time.The schools work together in the following ways: (1) one school acting as tutor (Anna de Noailles school in Larche) and one liaison school (Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne school); (2) one school acting as tutor (Ussel school) and two liaison schools (Merlines and Neuvic schools). Via the Numéris telephone network, the project involves the use of computers connected to a video network so that screens can be shared in real time. Pupils have three distance-learning sessions each week.
