As per the military agreement signed between the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) General Staff and Senegal General Staff, Turkish courses are being organized since 2019 by our Institute at the Turkish Teaching Center allocated for our Institute at the Cap Manuel Barracks. Within the scope of the teaching program that starts in October and ends in July every year, the Turkish lessons for the Senegalese soldiers were successfully completed this year also.

The Cap Manuel Barracks Turkish Teaching Center completed the academic year of 2020-2021 and had its third term graduates.

In his speech, Ambassador Kavas reminded that there were 43 Turkish embassies present in Africa and mentioned that the cooperation between Turkey and the continent was increasing with each passing day.

Kavas emphasized that these collaborations not only were in a commercial sense, but they also advanced in the field of culture, mentioned that YEI was the best example of this advancement, and congratulated the soldiers who received their diplomas.

Dakar YEI Director Elsıkma gave a speech during the ceremony and wished for the long continuation of the friendships established via the Turkish courses.

25 soldiers who successfully completed the nine-month Turkish course that started in October 2020 received their diplomas from YEI Instructor Imran Ipek.

The students thanked Ipek and presented him with gifts.

"THE INTEREST IN TURKISH INCREASES AS TURKISH INVESTMENTS GROW"

 Dakar YEI Director Elsıkma pointed out at the end of the ceremony that the convergence between Senegal and Turkey increased the interest in Turkish.

Elsıkma said, "According to an agreement signed between the Turkish Armed Forces General Staff and Senegal General Staff, we have been conducting Turkish teaching activities since 2019. Here, we are teaching Turkish to Senegalese soldiers. Our Turkish courses continue at our cultural center in Dakar also.".

 Dakar YEI Director Merve Işık Elsıkma: The number Senegalese who want to learn Turkish increases as the number of Turkish investors in Senegal increases. In addition, the university students are also interested in Turkish for intellectual purposes.

Elsıkma emphasized that especially those who are engaged in commerce certainly wanted to learn Turkish and said, "The number Senegalese who want to learn Turkish increases as the number of Turkish investors in Senegal increases. In addition, the university students are also interested in Turkish for intellectual purposes.".

"BOTH OUR CULTURAL AND MILITARY COOPERATION INCREASE"

YEI Instructor Imran Ipek said that every graduate soldier was going to Turkey to complete their internships in the relevant fields and coming back to Senegal.

YEI Instructor İmran İpek: 1 soldiers have graduated in the third term. Most of these students went to Turkey for their internships. Those who complete their internships in Turkey want a second internship chance; they say that they want to revisit Turkey. They are also seeking the delights they have tasted in Turkey. They ask where they kind find Turkish coffee and Turkish tea in Senegal. Thus, both our cultural and military cooperation increase.

Ipek underlined that they have been emphasizing the execution of the military cooperation under a common language, and said, "71 soldiers have graduated in the third term. Most of these students went to Turkey for their internships. Those who complete their internships in Turkey want a second internship chance; they say that they want to revisit Turkey. They are also seeking the delights they have tasted in Turkey. They ask where they kind find Turkish coffee and Turkish tea in Senegal. Thus, both our cultural and military cooperation increase.".

THEY WILL RECEIVE MILITARY TRAINING AT TAF
