English Club TV has signed an agreement with PA Business Phuket Co. Ltd. for the broadcasting of its unique edutainment channel in Thailand. The full linear TV channel from English Club TV has been available in the Basic package for more than 80,000 subscribers to the platform of the same name, providing them with an innovative solution for English learning.
Andrew Semchenko, CEO of the English Club TV Group, announced:
“Thailand is the 2nd most visited tourist destination in Asia and the 9th most popular place to visit in the world, with about 32.6 million arrivals in 2016. While tourism is one of the main sectors of the country’s economy, English plays an important role as a universal tool of communication. Moreover, the importance of the English language in Thailand is growing in all sectors of the country’s economy, especially in those which are export-oriented, as such, the demand for an English-speaking workforce is high. According to the latest research, the main problems that Thai workers encounter while communicating with their foreign business partners in English are difficulties in dealing with different accents and specific expressions. English Club TV will bring Thai people a new effective way of learning English that has gained public recognition throughout the world. We provide different educational programmes with a focus on vocabulary, listening, grammar and pronunciation, presented in 40-minute blocks for learners of different levels. Our new viewers will be able to enjoy both British and American English TV shows, hosted by native speakers, immerse themselves into the language environment and get a feel for the language. Join English Club TV in Thailand and speak to the world!”
