This is a wonderful program that I would highly recommend!

Greta from Summer Short 2018

I would say that if your goal in coming to Japan is to learn Japanese (as opposed to just sight seeing) this is a good program. The teachers and staff are extremely helpful and friendly, and you will learn a lot. We did go on some fun excursions though too! After searching for language programs in Japan, this seemed to be both one of the cheapest, longest, and most language focused programs I could find, and I was not disappointed!

The Kamakura Cultural Class trip experience allowed me to get closer to my classmates.

Kristopher from Summer 2018

The Kamakura Cultural Class trip was definitely one of the highlights of my summer. It enabled me to take a moment to breathe and learn more about Japanese history and culture. The experience also allowed me to get closer to my classmates.

I learned a lot and enjoyed what I learned

Kayla from Summer 2018

I enjoyed having different teachers to see how I learned and who I learn the most with. I also enjoyed learning with non English speakers so I was forced to use my Japanese to interact with others.

Speak to as many native speakers as you can during your stay in Japan!

Sydney from Summer 2018

Speak to as many native speakers as you can during your stay in Japan. Go to new places outside of school — I found it very helpful to go to local coffee shops, izakaya, and parks to put myself into situations where I could converse with new people. Don’t be shy! If you use what you’ve learned in class outside of the classroom, you’ll have an easier time remembering it under stress.

It is really fun and a great experience to learn a new language so quickly!

Cassandra from Summer 2018

I liked that everything was taught in Japanese, even though it took a while to adjust it was very immersive.

Make the most of being in Tokyo

Kaisu from Summer 2018

I’d also encourage everyone to make the most of being in Tokyo – one of the safest and greatest cities in the world. I’ve learned some spoken Japanese every day since I’ve been only using Japanese everywhere and I’ve rarely spent an evening staying at home here.
The time frame was a good match with my work & study schedule and the location of the school is good as well since it’s close enough to my favorite places in Tokyo.

The teachers were excellent and I learned so much from the classes!

Lisa from Summer 2018

The most productive aspect of this program was the Japanese language course taught Monday through Friday at KCP. The teachers were excellent and I learned so much from the classes! Since we have conversation practice everyday with our classmates in class, I felt that my Japanese speaking skills have definitely improved.

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

David from Summer Short 2018

The instructors made sure to include everybody in the lesson, which meant nobody was left behind on the lesson.

The most productive and interesting aspects of the program is classes were 100% in Japanese!

Michael from Summer Short 2018

I was initially sceptical of classes that were 100% in Japanese (i.e. without come explanation in English), but am now a complete convert to this fully immersive method of teaching.

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.
