The European Language Label conference in Tallinn was the third Europe-wide event for representatives of award-winning initiatives in the field of language learning. Each country participating in the Label was invited to send three participants to the conference and there were about 60 additional language learning professionals from Estonia. All in all, the event gathered over 170 participants from 26 European countries. The event combined a half-day conference on the topic of "Creative language teaching – language teaching for creativity", and an exhibition of award winning projects that excelled in these themes. It was opened in the evening of 16 April by Mr Tõnis Lukas, the Estonian Minister of Education and Research, and Mr Harald Hartung, Head of the Multilingualism Unit at the Commission. The participants watched Commissioner Orban's video message and were then given a taste of the Estonian language from the director of a local language school. They learned how to greet someone, tell their names and count to ten. The language session was followed by an informal tour of the project stands where visitors were also offered snacks and drinks typical of the represented countries. The morning conference on Friday 17 April started with a presentation on the language situation of Estonia by Mr Tõnu Tender, a representative of the Ministry of Education and Research. It was followed by Mr Hartung's presentation of the Commission's Communication on Multilingualism. The third speaker was Mr David Marsh, the co-ordinator of the study on creativity and languages, who gave a presentation on some of the findings of his research. The speeches were followed by a one-hour working group session, on the following three themes:
The conference ended in plenary with the workshop reports and discussion with the audience. The afternoon was entirely dedicated to the exhibition of the Label award winners, open to the public. The conference ended with a guided tour and dinner in downtown Tallinn.
