The teachers at KCP helped me a lot.

Marylea from Winter 2020

The fact that the teachers push you to use the best Japanese you can really helped me to better understand the language in a way that just learning from a friend wouldn’t. I loved going to class and learning the material as it was presented.

I had an enthusiastic KCP International experience.

nicole from Fall 2019

Being in a foreign country can be stressful and having friends you feel “have you back” really helps when you feel home sick. It’s also a great study motivation to study together.

I enjoyed the trip to Yamanashi and the Washoku workshop.

Kaiyue from Summer Short 2019

I enjoyed the trip to Yamanashi and the Washoku workshop the most, because they are out-of-school opportunities to observe and experience Japan. Outdoor trips are always exciting even to us college students.

I chose this program because of its well-favored reviews on various sites as well as the intensity provided by the classes. I looked for a challenge and KCP certainly provided that for me.
