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

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.

English and Citizenship Education
Vieux Port secondary school is located in a semi-rural area and experiences the problems associated with the local socio-economic situation. Foreign languages are not the most motivating subjects for the pupils, who sometimes underperform in English very early in their school career. The class chosen for this project consisted of fourth-year pupils taking their first foreign language. They were given two hours a week of intensive English lessons in addition to the three hours received by all pupils. While some establishments regarded intensive English lessons as a form of remedial teaching for pupils with difficulties, others saw it as a tool for helping motivated and able pupils to progress beyond their first foreign language. In this situation, all the pupils in question were brought together with a view to meeting the needs of pupils with different abilities.
