Andrew Semchenko, the CEO of English Club TV, says: ‘According to official statistics, The Finnish National Certificates of Language Proficiency, intended to measure language skills of adults, are becoming more and more popular. Almost 60% of applicants take the test in English, which offers them ample opportunity to practise their skills in everyday-like situations. The growing need to speak, listen, write or read in a foreign language – at home or abroad – pushes them to improve and polish their English. Moreover, Finland places 6th out of 80 countries in the world according to the level of English language knowledge; nevertheless, 85% of people in Finland think that English is useful for their personal development, and that they need to improve it permanently. So, I have no doubts that English Club TV will become not only an excellent tool for all viewers in Finland to improve their English for work, travelling and communication, but also join the whole family by the TV set!’
Tommi Blom, the CEO of Maxivision, says: “We are glad to introduce English Club TV to our channel portfolio. The channel serves many of our customer groups and offers useful and fun programming to follow in addition to our other entertainment offering.”
