Karesi Public Education and Training Center provides language courses to adults. That's why every term, many adults; retired men and women, housewives, young people from high schools, colleges or universities join the courses.
Some people say that they need to know and speak firstly English, secondly German or Russian in order to be able to communicate when they are abroad.
Some people who couldn't attend formal education, (when they were children or young because of some negative reasons,) start non-formal education years and years later again. But they have difficulty especially in foreign language classes, exams. So, they begin to look for solution to this problem.
Many of them randomly hear from their relatives, neighbours or friends that there is an "Adult Education and Training Center" in the city. They rush and register quckly for the courses.
If they attend the courses regularly, most of them become succesful and thank their teachers.
The students from high schools, colleges or universities who are lack of foreign language knowledge find the same solution at the Adult Education and Training Center and rush to register for the courses. They begin to be happy even at the first lesson.
And maybe the most important, many adults who join the foeign language classes say that "language studying and learning makes our brains active and so it is anti-aging activity and it is also against alsheimer disease"
