Special thank you

Alberta Advanced Education and Technology wants to give a special thank you to the Edmonton Journal and the Calgary Herald newspapers. They let us adapt their stories and use their photos on the website.

Many volunteers help with the English Express website. For example, they pose for photos. They read the stories for the website. Thank you, volunteers!
