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!

Learning strategies: English as 1st foreign language – German as 2nd foreign language
The knowledge of foreign languages is of fundamental importance in a region bordering on Austria, with its economy based on tourism and trade. A European focus to training is fundamental, and the school works to make the learning of two foreign languages (English and German) a shared heritage for young people. The strategy is broadly based on extending vocabulary, and encouraging the habit of comparative study between the two languages, through applying the communicative abilities acquired in one language to the other language.
