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 Barrier - The Barrier for Career
The aim of the project is to assist different groups of people to master foreign languages at various levels. People of different age, jobs and nationalities are involved in the project as well as students, job seekers and pensioners. So far about 2 400 people have been involved in the project and until the end of the project in year 2003, it’s planned to involve about 600 more participants. To popularise not only the most common world languages (English, German, French, Spanish, Russian), the project also offers to learn Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Hungarian, Swedish, Norwegian and Danish languages. For those non-citizens who are living in Latvia, there is a possibility to learn Latvian language.
