Ankara Metropolitan Municipality (ABB) prioritizes equality of opportunity in education with 'student-friendly' practices and continues to implement projects where students from the Capital can lead a more productive and more enjoyable education life during the summer break.
The "Kesikköprü English Language Village Project", organized in cooperation with the Seda Yekeler Education Foundation (SEYEV) and under the coordination of the Department of Women and Family Services, was implemented. The first group of 12 students between the ages of 16 and 230 settled in the free English summer camp.
ABB President Mansur Yavaş, who showed great interest in Kesikköprü English Holiday Camp, did not leave the children alone on their first day and toured the classrooms one by one, and addressed the students with the following words:
“I hope you will have a great day here. You will all learn English. In the evening, there will be activities, you will watch movies, you will improve yourself. I hope those who see you will want to come here more as you go and tell them. Of course, we want to expand this business even more. Language is very important… I know very well the foundation that trained you and made an agreement with you. They are not here to teach languages. They are here to make you a language owner. They have the following principles; They say 'language is not learned, language is acquired'. So when you come back from here, you will all take one more English language with you. Then of course, they will definitely inform you, they will also show you the ways to practice on the internet, speak English and gain experience on top of what you will gain here. Also, all of you have mobile phones and they also have applications for you to improve your English. If you continue with this, you will learn the foreign language faster than your other friends. I wish you all success. I hope we will meet again on our return and talk to each other in English together. I am also trying to learn English with you. French was common in our childhood. They tried to teach French. English has become my additional language. I am also trying to improve myself. Send my very best regards and love to your families. I wish you a good day. I hope you will have unforgettable days and a beautiful camp that you will tell your own children in the future. I kiss all your eyes."
