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

France: What a Pleasure/La France: quel plaisir
The project “France: What a Pleasure/La France: quel plaisir”, which raised awareness and spread the French language among pupils, represented a positive stimulus for the study of this language. The project developed the knowledge of the French culture, traditions and language, by making children familiar with the fashion, wine and food of this country, areas which have made it famous worldwide. The final result was an outdoor event articulated in two moments: an old fashion parade (since Napoleon to the present day) and the reconstruction of a square in Paris, including some features such as a bouquiniste, bistros, a corner with street painters, a “virtual tour” through the most beautiful places in France and food stands.
