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!

Language and Arts Projects for Children
The aims of the project are to promote creative methods of teaching of a foreign language with the use of all the potentials of multiple intelligence, integrate linguistic and cultural contents, motivate students to perceive the language as a dynamic means of communication and not only as a formal school subject and revise the language material that has been covered during the course on the basis of subjects which are appealing to students. Before carrying out each project, special workshops for teachers are organised, a set of additional materials is created and lessons leading to the introduction of a project are carried out. The students are involved in the decision making process about the content of the project. Finally, the projects are realised and presented.
