The Daily English Show was produced in Canada from May to November 2007. We arrived in Vancouver in May and travelled to Cawston, Nelson, Wolfville and Vancouver Island.
 
One of the highlights of the trip was spending two months producing the show at a university in Wolfville, Nova Scotia called Acadia University. The Daily English Show was produced at Acadia University from Show 495 Monday 10th September to Show 541 Friday 26 October.
 
While we were at Acadia we introduced a new section to The Daily English Show called Asking Acadia. In September 2008, we introduced a new section called The Acadia Report. In The Acadia Report, we introduce people and events from in and around the university. Some of the footage we use is made by students who are studying English at Acadia University.
 
If you are thinking of studying English in Canada, The Daily English Show recommends Acadia University. Find out more about their English language programs here. Or watch this video introducing Acadia University:
