Andrew Semchenko, the CEO of English Club TV Ltd. declares:
“Our multinational team follows the strategy to expand the territory of broadcasting. We are happy that this summer finishes with signing a contract with UPC Austria.
This is not only the beginning of a new academic year, but also the start of the new television season in autumn. According to the statistics provided by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, every 7th student in Austria studies in English. I believe that our programs help to overcome the language barrier and make learning of the English language interesting and fascinating for more and more people. I think that our programs will be useful for pupils, students, teachers of English, businessmen, travelers etc. And I am persuaded that all the little viewers and their parents will enjoy our kids’ module that was developed to help children learn English in a fun way and develop their creative potential.”
