I found everything helpful. Especially English Support.

Suvi from Winter 2019

Japanese Psychology and Religion were very interesting topics and gave me a new perspective to the Japanese everyday life and social relationships.

The Edo wonderland event was very interesting.

Norman from Winter 2019

Please research how to do daily activities in Japan such as laundry etc. Furthermore depending on where you live you may want to look at google maps and see whats in the area beforehand so you can get an idea of where you want to go or shop.

The two semester level 1 class really changed my experience from great/good to excellent.

Brittany from Winter 2019

The amount of studying required is intense and you will need to study very hard. You will also need to make an effort to get out and see Japan because there is always more to be studying it can be hard to make time to see Japan but it’s part of the experience.

KCP was the best program for the price and the location

Joshua from Fall 2018

In class, pair work was the most helpful and just talking with Japanese friends outside of class was the most helpful in that sense.

The most productive and interesting part of the program, I think, was having the classes taught all in Japanese.

Kumiko from Fall 2018

The most productive and interesting part of the program, I think, was having the classes taught all in Japanese. Even from level one, you have no choice but to concentrate on the language and have a need to learn quickly in order to understand better. As a student from the American program, it is hard to think of what was the least productive or interesting, I think everything was just so well done!

The course is really intensive and requires a lot of your time and effort to make the most of it. You’ll get the most out of it by putting the most into it.

Jacobo from Fall 2018

Talk to your classmates, make friends and do your best to use as much Japanese as you can and you’ll learn a lot quicker than you’d think.

This program offered everything that I had been looking for from a Japanese language school.

Suzi from Fall 2018

The most productive aspect was that throughout the day at school I always had access to a place to study, a place to eat/take a break and I could always find a teacher to ask for help.

The most important reason why I selected the program was for its affordability. As a graduate, I am paying for the program through my own personal funds without the help of any university financial aid or scholarships. Affordability and value of the program were essential in my decision, and KCP has exceeded my expectations.
