Learning English with CBC Calgary & CBC Edmonton

CBC Calgary and Edmonton provide weekly newscasts and monthly stories at CLB 4+. Comprehensive lesson plans can be completed as a class or for independent study. Newscasts contain three stories with audio and video files, pre-listening activities, vocabulary preparation, listening and discussion tasks, plus links to Quizlet for additional vocabulary practice. Transcripts and answer keys are included.

Monthly stories (CLB 5+) contain 20 – 40-page lesson plans with activities for each language skill, plus vocabulary building, grammar activities, Quizlet practice, transcripts and answer keys.

The news and monthly stories may be specific to a city or province; however, topics are generally interesting to a wider audience.
