Displaced Syrian children who had to flee Syria due to the civil war in their country are willing to learn Turkish at the camps in Turkey's southeastern province of Kahramanmaras.

Nursery school children continue their education according to the curriculum applied in Syria at the schools built at the camps, while also learning Turkish.

The Governor of the province, Sukru Kocatepe, paid a visit to the camps, and the Syrian children welcomed the Governor in Turkish. Kocatepe afterwards inaugurated the exhibition of the Syrian women who attended a ready-made clothing course at the camps and learnt how to make clothes. Visiting the exhibition, Kocatepe congratulated the Syrian women.

Kocatepe told the reporters that Turkey provided the Syrians in Turkey with all kinds of services which they needed.

There are 2,300 Syrian students at the camps, said Kocatepe adding "We have Turkish courses to teach Turkish to the Syrians. There is peace at the camps. We wish from our heartd that the conflict in Syria will come to an end soon."

More than 80,000 people have been killed and 1.5 million people have fled Syria since the uprising in March 2011, according to UN estimates.
