Languages - Competition to talk about

21st January 2011 at 00:00

The deadline is approaching for entries to a UK-wide competition that highlights innovative language-learning projects.

European Language Label rewards creative ways to motivate learners and make the best of resources.

Projects should demonstrate creative thinking, improved teaching and learner achievement. They must be innovative and replicable in the UK and abroad.

This year, judges are particularly looking for projects involving language skills as preparation for work, and learning in the community.

European Language Label in the UK was, until 2010, known as the European Award for Languages, and is part of a Europe-wide programme funded by the European Commission. More than 1,300 projects in 30 European countries have been awarded prizes.

This year's deadline is January 31. All winners will receive prizes of books, vouchers or teaching materials.
