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.).

CLIL: Learning languages through science and environmental education
The Comenius multilateral project "CLIL: Learning languages through science and environmental education" was designed to put teachers and schools in Europe in touch in order to explore and produce CLIL materials about science for primary school children.
The CLIL methodology on scientific subjects with particular attention to environmental education was derived from the interests of the pupils and the needs of teachers who were previously linked to traditional teaching.
The project improved the quality of teaching: teachers, using cross curricular approach, creating an instrument with characteristics of transferability of materials and strategies: a book (workbook-lesson plans), in which they have collected units tested in the classroom.
