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!
Label of the day
Languages and Culture: “Contract of Reciprocity”; “Our Peter Pan in Italian Sign Language (ISL)”. Teaching of ISL as Second Language
What better teacher could a foreign child at Villanova di Guidonia have than a schoolmate acting as their Italian tutor? And what better mediator could the adult foreign students at the school at Villanova have than the Italian students they meet to discuss the music, art and traditions of their home countries? There could be no better environment for children of diverse abilities than a class in which their friends and teachers understand sign language. This projects brings many benefits: enhancing a dignified sense of identity, building the individual’s personal identity, recognising ‘the other’, and creating an intercultural attitude.
