European Language Label Award 2019

 

Do you know of a creative, innovative and inspirational language learning initiative, or one that promotes the importance of languages? Then apply for a European Language Label Award in 2019!

The European Language Label Award (ELLA) is coordinated by the European Commission. It highlights and rewards innovative initiatives in language teaching, learning and promotion, and brings these initiatives to the attention of the public along with professionals in the languages field.

The ELLA is open to all fields of education and training. No project is too big or too small, and both accredited and non-accredited initiatives are encouraged to apply. Whether it’s a football team, university, community group, school, youth group, company, or choir – we want to hear your stories of language learning being brought to life!

ELLA applications must support one or more of these six categories:

  1. Engaging language learning environments
  2. Multilingual schools and classrooms
  3. Language-friendly society
  4. Languages for the future
  5. Increasing awareness and changing perceptions
  6. Using technology to enhance language learning techniques

These categories support the award’s aims along with those of Languages Connect. The Digital Strategy for Schools is also supported in category 6.

Apply online now before the deadline of Tuesday 30 April 2019.  Entrants will be notified of the results by the end of May 2019. All winners will receive an award and certificate at the award ceremony in Dublin on Thursday 10 October 2019. 

Please read the Competition Guidelines, including Terms and Conditions, before applying.

More about the award

Léargas has managed the ELLA in Ireland for nine years. More than one hundred educational, training and community groups and language teachers, learners and ambassadors have received the ELLA.

Previous winners have said that “receiving external validation from such a respected organisation was a huge boost for the organisation and our team”. The European Language Label is not limited to European languages; teaching or learning of any language can be considered.

Lovely ephemeral art created by students from Ireland and Spain in this #erasmusplus project... thinking about environment, links between Spain and Ireland, pilgrimages in the past, and exploring our world today...

The Art Hand
We facilitated this environmental artwork today with TY students from Newtown School (Ireland) and ADN Centro Educativo (Spain). Planet Earth on fire at the centre of the eye was created (in the rain) with kelp and rocks on Bunmahon Beach. The design was developed during a series of workshops at Newtown School under the guidance of environmental artist Sean Corcoran and staff teacher Karen Keogh. Later the sun shone and we moved to Kilmurrin Cove to write a special message to the Erasamus+ students who return to Spain soon. #OneWorld #FridaysForFuture #Teamwork #StandUpAndBeCounted #ClimateAction
