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!

Bilingual Italian Lessons/Primary School
Since 1999 26 children start in grade 1 to learn Italian (and German) by the bilingual method. From the beginning they are taught Italian with added force, also in subject matters. They are supposed to be able to write in Italian at the end of grade 2.
The children come from a German, Italian or binational background. Their knowledge of the two languages varies, so the school must adapt to their preconditions. The project is innovatory and has a European dimension as children learn with other children who represent a different part of the European culture.
