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.

Label of the day
Culture in Language, Language Vs. Culture
The aim of the project was to motivate students to read magazines for youth in English, which in turn was supposed to be the basis for using the topics from these magazines to explore the stereotypes that exist in the cultures of other countries, explore our own impressions and perception of other countries and their cultures, explain the origins of stereotypes, develop students' autonomy and raise intercultural awareness. The main activities carried out within the project were based on a so called: 'Task-Culture-Based Lessons'. During such classes not only students' autonomy was developed but also European identity.
