Thanks to Lactalis-Ak Gıda I finished my language course in France in the first 5 months. Within 5 months I learned what I would have otherwise learned only after many years of great effort. When I arrived here, I did not speak French. With the training I received at L'Université Catholique de l'Ouest, which has been teaching French to foreigners since 1947, I can proudly say that I have learned it. I stayed with 2 French families organised by our school. This allowed me to both improve my language skills and to learn French culture by example in a short period of time. On 21 August I began my preparation course for the master's programme at the Ecole Supérieure d'Agricultures (ESA). I am happy to be here. I am grateful to Lactalis for providing the young generation with such an opportunity.

Since April I am taking part in the Real taste of engineering programme sponsored by Ak Gıda and organised in France. I have now finished my first 8 months of the programme. In the first 5 months I learned general and technical French while staying with 2 French families. I learned the French language, culture and traditions from close observation. In September I took up my 2-year master's course at the
École Supérieure d'Agriculture. The first 3 months were dedicated to general orientation, engineering, IT/informatics tools and food production. My course mates are not only French, but from countries like Ireland, Brazil, Kazakhstan, Russia, the Czech Republic, Algeria and Zambia whose studies are sponsored by Lactalis. I spent a large part of the last month at one of Lactalis’ facilities in France where I had the opportunity to practically apply what I have learned, and to get a taste of its corporate atmosphere. Until September 2018 I will spent monthly periods at a plant that produces the President brand cheese and will work with the production team. President is one of France’s favourite Brie type cheese which is also exported.
