English Club TV launches in France

English-language teaching channel English Club TV has launched on Bouygues Telecom’s platform in France.

The deal is the first for English Club TV in France, and covers both standard and HD versions of the channel. The channel is distributed in France by Gorse & Co.

“I know that the French government decided to carry out an educational reform and make English classes obligatory at schools along with French and maths. All of our team appreciates the decision of Bouygues Telecom – choosing English Club TV and English Club TV HD as the means of learning English in France. Being a multinational company, we intend to make English a powerful tool in order to open new horizons for more people all over the world, saving their cultural identity,” said Andrew Semchenko, managing director of English Club TV Group.
