Council of Europe has created the European Centre for Modern Languages - a unique institution whose mission is to encourage excellence and innovation in language teaching and to help Europeans learn languages more efficiently.

The ECML's Strategic Objectives are to help its member states implement effective language teaching policies by:

focusing on the practice of the learning and teaching of languages

promoting dialogue and exchange among those active in the field 

training multipliers 

supporting programme-related networks and research projects

In order to implement its strategic objectives, the European Centre for Modern Languages, organises a programme of international projects on language education. (see ECML activities above)

Basing its work on the underlying values of the Council of Europe and its pioneering work in language education, the ECML is ideally equipped to act as a catalyst for reform in the teaching and learning of languages.
