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!

Teaching and Learning Estonian in the Multinational Skype Company
Skype is an international company. More than 80 foreigners from 39 countries work in the Tallinn office. Although the Estonian language is not the working language in the company, since 2005 Skype has offered its employees to participate in the Estonian language courses in their own workplaces. People actively use this opportunity and with years learning the Estonian language in Skype’s Tallinn office has become very popular. Learning the local language helps employees with various cultural backgrounds to better integrate in the international team and in the Estonian society. Skype is a positive example of a multicultural company that creates good opportunities for development of its personnel.
