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.

Between the lines
The project “Between the lines” aimed to develop students' reading skills and motivate them to read and communicate effectively with colleagues from other cultural backgrounds. After reading, they designed many text analysis tasks that provided topics for debate and inspired the project blog (with a structure similar to that of the novel Dracula by Bram Stoker). The project involved students in activities designed to develop transferable skills, supported them to assimilate knowledge of psychology, philosophy, literature and history, to understand the importance of teamwork and to explore their creative potential.
