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:

You can also combine up to all of these criteria to conduct a more focused search.

Translation Strategies Baccalaureate
Putting the instrumental and communicative value of languages studied into practice, involving the use of innovative language teaching methods. The application of translation/language teaching strategies was considered an innovative aspect, implying a new focus for learning. The discovery of other cultures as an aspect bringing a European dimension to the work is an element common to all of the successful initiatives, since they make their own reality known through the languages they are learning. The texts translated can be used by other students and by teachers.
