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!
Label of the day
24-hour English language marathon
The English language marathon has been a regular occurrence since 2008. Each edition is a 24-hour event (from 4.00PM on Friday to 4.00PM on Saturday) aimed at learning the language through play, cooperation and competition. Every year, 40-50 students aged 13-16 years old are involved in the round-the-clock creation of a school area in a convention agreed before. During this event the students create costumes, decorations and props serving the purpose of mutual learning and playing. This activity means to show that – while learning – you can go beyond the traditional school desk and methods and it also demonstrates that week-ends can be spent on combining work and rest.
