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

Learning by Karaoke
Karaoke is an interactive video game in which amateur singers sing along with recorded music using a microphone. It was first invented in Japan in 1970 as an entertainment device and it has now become widely popular all across Europe and the US. The project aims to use karaoke as a language learning tool, as students become active and enjoy language by singing more than by any other teaching method. The project also aims to develop students’ language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing), helps to gain self-confidence and increases students' motivation. Through the study, the students not only develop vocabulary and language skills, but also acquire the cultural structures of the target language. In this way, the acquired language gains permanence in students’ mind; and an outstanding increase in language abilities is also achieved.
