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!

ALL / Language Perfect World Championship
The ALL / Language Perfect World Championship is an online vocabulary competition which pits student against student, school against school and country against country.
Competition is an important motivator, especially amongst boys. This project uses competition ostensibly to improve vocabulary skills, but along the way it stimulates greater awareness of a variety of different languages, increases interest in the learning of languages in general, and introduces a real international dimension to language classes. It also creates a great buzz around the school, and raises the profile of the language department amongst students and teachers in a really positive way.
ALL is an official partner of the competition in the UK, and across the world many other language teaching associations are involved. The competition aims to expand within Europe and encourage even more schools in the EU
