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!

Life and Times of Patrycja and Vicky's Adventures
The aim of the project is to teach English in a highly original way with the help of a national newspaper 'Gazeta Wyborcza' and internet. The newspaper publishes periodically the story of life of two real girls. The story is in English and there are references to the internet site of the institution where exercises for each episode of the story can be found. Both girls have their e-mail addresses available to students, or readers of the newspaper who can write to them in English and continue the learning informally through correspondence with the girls. Since both girls are teenagers, their everyday problems are the same as the problems of learners so the learning process through e-mail is natural, spontaneous and highly informal.
