Language teaching and learning is essential to ensuring that European citizens can move, work, and learn freely throughout Europe. This will help boost jobs and growth, and contribute to a mutual understanding of other countries and cultures. It is also essential to ensure that language deficiencies are not a barrier to participation in society. The role of the European Commission is to coordinate efforts with national governments to pursue the objectives of the strategic framework for languages with support from the activities of Erasmus+.
The European Language Label encourages and rewards innovative practices in the field of language teaching and learning, in any phase of education and training. European Language Label projects have contributed substantially to the promotion of innovative language teaching and learning, throughout all Europe.
