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

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.

Implementation of Modern Languages Study Programme
Latvia University Modern Languages Faculty has a challenging project: a new teacher training programme for teachers of seven different languages: English, German, French, Italian, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian. The programme is meant for BA graduates in Pedagogy or Philology, who are already working in schools of different parts of Latvia. This means rearranging the whole work of the faculty, as normally every department works on its own: the English, the Germanic, the Romanic and Scandinavian departments have their own courses, programmes, teaching materials and also traditions.
The project idea is based on documents developed by the Council of Europe: Common European Framework of language learning, teaching and assessment levels provided project team with the basis for comparing students across the languages, European Language Portfolio provided with an instrument of self-assessment
