The Opening the Door to Language Learning (OdLL) Project aimed to encourage organisations delivering language learning (universities, colleges, schools, publishers, businesses) to develop initiatives whereby their materials and expertise could be made available to a wider and different set of learners. The OdLL Project consisted of three phases, the first two being devoted to trialling and evaluating open learning models in seven European countries (Belgium, Hungary, Ireland, Lithuania, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom). The third phase consisted of evaluating these models and compiling a guide to good practice in promoting language learning, of which the handbook is a key element.
