VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 28, 2005 -- Serebra Learning Corporation (TSX-V: SBR), one of Canada's leading providers of e-learning solutions, today reported financial results, as well as an update on operations, for the fiscal 2006 second quarter, which ended September 30, 2005.

Key Quarterly Financial Highlights:

--  Revenue of $596,129 compared to $353,492 for the same quarter a year
    ago.

The operating results in the second quarter were boosted by a marked improvement in revenue over the first quarter. Revenue is beginning to stabilize, while margins have improved and expenses have been reduced. All of these results, combined with several key additions to the course library, point to real improvements in the business.

Richard Walton, Serebra's Chief Financial Officer, said, "We are pleased with our progress this quarter, driven primarily by the growing strength of our EasyLearning program and the strengthening of our vendor relationships. On a year-over-year basis, we increased our gross margin, managed our costs and expenses more productively, and continued to build on new revenue and market opportunities."

"With the resurgence of North American activity and the continued growth of EasyLearning opportunities internationally, revenues are also growing while customers are responding very positively," said Ted Moorhouse, president and CEO, Serebra Learning Corporation. "We are seeing momentum, with the improvements in the course content delivery speeds from our EasyLearning servers and by our great growth in North American customer satisfaction. We are confident in our e-learning product and delivery strategies, and as momentum behind our execution builds, we are beginning to fire on all cylinders."
