I found pair work and drill practices to be the most helpful.

Learning more about Japanese culture to better understand the values, traditions, and history of Japan. It was a very enriching course and I enjoyed it very much.

Anything you especially liked in the living arrangements? Any problems you experienced?

Being independent and having a bit more freedom. I experienced no problems while staying in the dorms.

Frankly, it seemed like the best. The other programs I looked at were either heavily geared towards Chinese and Korean students or prohibitively expensive. Plus, KCP has a long history and a LOT of alumni who openly praise the program online — and I hope to be among them!
