Improving access to free English lessons

March 12, 2018
Alberta Government

With a two-year grant from the Alberta government, Learning English with CBC has improved its website to make it easier for newcomers to participate in its English language lessons. The lessons use news stories and interviews from around the province to help new Albertans learn about their communities.

The $153,566 grant will support a fully interactive website, which can be accessed on mobile devices for the first time. The stories are read at a slower pace to help learners better understand the content. To test their understanding of the stories, students of the program can submit answers and get immediate feedback.
