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.

Label of the day
Presentation of the Czech language and culture

The project arose from the action Fete de Langues which was held in 2001. Young people from the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Germany and Palestine took part in this feast. The target of the project was to draw the attention of foreign students to the Czech language. The project has 2 parts: liguistic and cultural. Students made a textbook of Czech with their own ilustrations. The book includes a quiz about the Czech Republic and main grammar with exercises. The second part includes the web site of the secondary school. Students composed it in English, French, German and Italian. There are information about the region of Ceska Lipa. Students composed slides which demonstrate the history of Czech Republic. And they prepared the comments in English, French and German to the slides. They organized excursions round the region of Ceska Lipa.
