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.

Enjoy your search!

Languages connect: learning together
The general secondary school (Hauptschule) at Rechnitz is not far from Felsőcsatár, where its Hungarian partner school is situated: good use is made of this geographical closeness, to provide schooling across the border. Every two months, youngsters from Rechnitz spend a day at the school in Felsőcsatár; in alternate months, pupils from the Hungarian school visit and attend Rechnitz general secondary school. This gives a chance to learners to have subjects taught by ‘native speakers’: direct language contact experienced by pupils in their respective peer groups contributes a lot to improving language skills and competence. All languages taught at those two schools are included in this scheme: German, English, Croatian and Hungarian.
