Learning environments where modern languages flourish

EOL presents a vision of a language friendly environment and encourages a strategic approach to language teaching and learning. The starting point for such a global approach to language education is a widespread awareness of the role of languages for the promotion of democratic citizenship and social cohesion.

The EOL website presents a range of professional development tools for individual teachers and for schools to set up learning environments which can release educational potential, for, and through, languages.


• EOL matrix – a dynamic tool to create a language friendly learning environment in schools
• Moodle online professional development course
• Examples from EOL partner schools which can easily be transferred to other contexts
• Training path for language specialists and non-specialists

Tools and resources
EOL tools are intended to meet the needs of all stakeholders and can be used in combination or independently of one another.

The EOL matrix is a dynamic tool to model your school towards a language friendly learning environment. By matching 4 “environmental levels” with 5 dimensions of language learning, the matrix helps schools identify new opportunities for, and through, languages. Explore the tools and resources and browse for those that meet your needs and expectations!

Professional development
This 7-step training path enables both specialists (language teachers and teacher educators) and non-specialists (subject teachers and headteachers):
• to understand what language learning environments are;
• to explore the matrix and other resources;
• to implement a language project in a school or in a class.

Discover a global approach to languages and develop your own professional skills!
