When a Chris­tian boy was re­cruit­ed, first he would be sent to selected Turkish families to learn to speak Turkish and culture of Ottoman society. Later they were trained in tough Enderun school, even­tu­al­ly con­vert­ing to Islam. The more talented ones received a higher standard of ed­u­ca­tion to become en­gi­neer­s, ar­chi­tect­s, physi­cians and sci­en­tist­s. Janis­saries belonged to the Sultan, carrying the title kapıkulu "slaves of the Porte".
