Awarding innovation and best practice

The European Language Label is an award from the European Commission 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 award ceremony was held in the buildings of European Commission Representation to the United Kingdom, in Westminster, London.

The main focus of the European Language Label is to promote innovation in language teaching.


The Label is awarded to the most innovative language learning projects in each country participating in the scheme.

ArabicOnline brought together the hard work and committment of sixteen people. Four of our team were present to accept the award.

The EU judge’s report after reviewing ArabicOnline contained the following comment.

‘I was impressed by the carefully planned pedagogical structure which seeks to unpick the language through interaction with role plays based on practical situations. As they work through each unit, the learner is encouraged to delve deeper and deeper into the elements of each role play, through study of the vocabulary, sound patterns, Arabic script and the grammar underpinning the language.’

During the actual prize-giving, we were even complemented with the announcement that some of the judges had actually started learning Arabic as a result!

The proof is in the pudding!

Having a coffee and a chat in Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden, London. A bright and mild September day amongst the hustle and bustle of central London. An opportunity to reflect and think ahead!
