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!

Stanislas – multi-country educational projects
As part of the European Stanislas initiative, education professionals implement projects which help reinforce the learning experience for all pupils, help combat violence and absenteeism, and contribute towards European integration. The initiative brings together staff from various partner countries to discuss a range of subjects and implement projects in various areas. Among these, two projects relate to language learning: the first concerns the introduction of foreign children into schools and poses the problem of how these children learn the language of the host country in a traditional school setting; the second gives an account of the Olympics organised for children from various European countries who, through the medium of sport, learn to get to know and communicate with each other better.
