Very helpful course for kickstarting Japanese study. Lessons with the good teachers are really fun.

Andrew from Summer 2015

Which events or activities did you find the most satisfying and why?

In the spring, the class day in Shinjuku Gyoen Mae park was fun. Generally, everyday class discussion was satisfying.

What activities or materials did you find most helpful (e.g., pair work, drill practice, tests, small group sessions, textbooks, games)?

The best days were when we had a small class (10-13 students) and we did class discussion and exercises. Overall, the textbooks (Minna no Nihongo I, II, Kanji 1,2,3, and custom KCP material) were very good. I hated writing sakubun at first but by the end I enjoyed it. This was one of the most useful things.

Any further thoughts or tips for those considering the program or new KCP students?

Very helpful course for kickstarting Japanese study. Lessons with the good teachers are really fun. Most of the other students are motivated and they will motivate you to study hard. I recommend the program.

KCP is a great choice if you are looking to improve your Japanese language skills while experiencing everything Japan has to offer. The school will make sure that your experience is enjoyable, and they will do their best to accommodate to your needs. If you have never been to Japan and want to experience studying in this country I highly recommend KCP. They will give you the true ‘Japan school life experience.
