What is the European Language Label?

The European Label is an award that encourages new initiatives in the field of teaching and 

learning languages, rewarding new techniques in language teaching, spreading the knowledge of 

their existence and thereby promoting good practice. 

The Label is open to all aspects of education and training, regardless of age or methods used, 

with its main focus being to promote innovation in language teaching. By supporting innovative 

projects, at a local and national level, the Label seeks to raise the standards of language 

teaching across Europe. 

Each year, the Label is awarded to the most innovative language 

learning projects in each country participating in the scheme. It is co-ordinated by the 

European Commission, but managed by the individual Member States, with national juries 

deciding on detailed criteria.

The general criteria for winning an award are agreed at European level, but individual 

countries can introduce their own requirements.
