Turkish Language Classes Met With Great Interest In Rwanda

Turkey, Rwanda enjoy good relations with several cooperative agreements in several sectors.

The introduction of Turkish language courses has been met with great interest in Rwanda where classes started earlier this month, according to a Turkish diplomat.
Turkey's envoy in Kigali Burcu Cevik told Anadolu Agency that the Yunus Emre Institute started teaching Turkish language courses at the University of Rwanda on July 5 and it has attracted many applicants.
"It was planned that the courses would be held both as face-to-face and online classes. However, due to the latest COVID-19 measures put in place in Rwanda, all classes have to be shifted to online for the time being," said Cevik.
She said the commencement of courses follows a Cooperation Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Yunus Emre Institute and the University of Rwanda.
Cevik said the Institute has an office on the university's premises and a Turkish lecturer was posted in May to the school to offer Turkish classes, promoting Turkish culture in Rwanda and encouraging academic cooperation between Turkish and Rwandan universities.
Yunus Emre's Enes Karacoban who teaches Turkish at the school said he is excited to see the number of students applying for the course increasing.
"As I speak to you now, 150 students have registered to learn Turkish," Karacoban said in a virtual interview from Kigali.
Karaçoban said he was thrilled to see students from outside Rwanda. Some are from Burundi, Mozambique, Djibouti and South Africa.
He said students will receive an introductory course of 36 hours with the first batch of students expected to complete courses in August but Turkish classes will continue with new groups.
Yunus Emre Institute is also planning to conduct Turkish cultural events in Kigali in the coming months.
"If all goes well after the COVID-19 restrictions, I have many promises from students who are willing to follow classes through face-to-face," he said.
Karacoba said many of those choosing to learn Turkish want to benefit from business communication and educational purposes.
He said Rwanda is a safe country which he believes is good for business and cultural development.
"For the last two months I have been here in Rwanda. I had a good experience. I met different people from Rwanda who are very helpful. I got a chance to meet graduates from the government scholarship of Turkey who supported me since my arrival," he said.
According to Cevik, Turkey and Rwanda have already signed 20 cooperative agreements from education to trade and investment.
Turkey is supporting Rwanda in its endeavors to strengthen its human capital in all fields, she said.
Turkey has also been providing full scholarships to Rwandan students for undergraduate and postgraduate studies in Turkey. So far, more than 200 students have benefited, said the diplomat. -
