The most productive aspect was the interactive design of the course.

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

I enjoyed the trip to the Yamanashi Prefecture the most. The bus trip gave me greater insight to the Japanese culture, especially pertaining to life outside Tokyo.

Why did you select this program?

I selected this program because of the cost and the intensity of the classes. I did not want to enroll in a more expensive program that would provide easy Japanese language courses. I wanted to challenge myself and take my skills to the next level.

Any other comments or suggestions?

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at KCP, and feel a lot more confident in my Japanese language skills. If there was one thing I would change, I would have preferred to have a morning class so I could spend my afternoons studying. With the divide of the classes, I ended up with the afternoon classes in level 2.

I highly recommend KCP for its focused and encouraging program. The opportunity to practice speaking and comprehending Japanese during class, in conversation sessions, and in day-to-day life was an invaluable experience for which I am very grateful. KCP’s staff and instructors are nothing but helpful and there is no question that they are dedicated to the dissemination of the Japanese language.
