Andrew Semchenko, the CEO of English Club TV, says: “I’m very proud that English Club TV is breaking down the stereotypes and disproving tendencies. 88% of people in Finland think that English is the most useful language for their personal development and 89% declare that English is necessary for their children’s future. Moreover, 46% of people in Finland say that they would like to improve their English constantly. It’s well known that the Finnish system of education differs from the educational systems in most European countries, but nevertheless helps to bring up harmonious and creative children. I’m convinced that our unique programmes for kids will help children in Finland to take their first steps in learning English with pleasure. For this autumn season the English Club TV team has prepared a lot of surprises for its viewers among which are the new entertainment slot and brand-new educational shows that feature the most widely-used proverbs (Figures of Speech) and new words (Rhyme Time)”.
“English Club TV differs from the mainstream entertainment channels and brings general language education to customer’s home. Elisa seeks to offer a wide variety of content to subscribers, and the English Club TV content is very well in line with the social values and responsibility of Elisa. With the school start now in fall, it is also the very time to promote this kind of valuable content”, says Mika Lepistö, Senior Business Manager of Elisa.
