Speaking about the new offering, Andrew Semchenko, CEO of the English Club TV Group, said: “In South Korea, English is the second compulsory language for all school children. English is also essential to enhance career opportunities in South Korea. Today about 37% of Koreans speak English fluently and more than 50% understand the language. Therefore it’s crucial for everyone to learn English and improve their language skills. Using the innovative educational content available from English Club TV Channel, together with E*PUBLIC we are creating a unique and easily accessible environment for those who want to learn or improve their English in innovative and exciting ways in South Korea”. Joohyun Sung, a researcher of E*PUBLIC said: “Today, English has become a crucial element in Korea. Even with Korean’s passion and effort to speak English fluently, English is still considered as one of the main obstacles to overcome. When I first saw the educational content of English Club TV, I immediately knew that this was it! This is what so many learners in Korea need if they want to develop their English further. I believe that the partnership between E*PUBLIC and English Club TV will offer great opportunities for Korean English learners.”
