"This visit gave us an unforgettable experience at McDonald's. Once we stepped into the training center, we had already felt the cheerful atmosphere around us.

We received very interesting and interactive talks from its experienced trainers. Also, we learned the importance that "trainer should be able to write on the trainees' heart".
