On 17 March, 2016, ENGLISH CLUB TV LTD and KANOPY, the on-demand educational streaming video service, signed an agreement to provide USA university libraries with access to the best educational programmes of English Club TV. Under this partnership the English Club TV Channel brings its programmes to students in the USA through the Kanopy Streaming Platform which gives them great opportunities to improve their English skills.
Andrew Semchenko, CEO of the English Club TV Group, announced:
“We are delighted to make such a partnership and believe that our programmes would be a valuable asset to the universities of the USA. Our company’s concept is learning through entertainment, so by watching our programmes students will be constantly motivated to study every step of the way. The English Club TV content will be both interesting and useful for English learners since it includes programmes focused on different topics and skills development. So I am sure our programmes will be truly helpful for foreign students in the USA.”
Olivia Humphrey, CEO of Kanopy, said:
“Kanopy is now streaming to nearly 2000 top universities and colleges in the USA. The English Club TV is a wonderful addition to our expanding catalog. We service many English as Second Language (ESL) students – both Americans and foreign students. It’s wonderful to be able to provide these resources to our audience, as well as to our burgeoning business in Teacher Education Colleges. Teaching English is an important skill set in today’s world.”
