Because I am a huge fan of research and spreadsheets, I created an excel worksheet comparing numerous Japanese study abroad programs by cost, housing, length of study, and many other comparison points. Overall, KCP came out superior based on the amount of things that you get for the price. After completing the program, I can say choosing KCP was a perfect decision. KCP is a real school — professional teachers, strict grading systems, textbooks – the whole package. KCP proved to be much more than I expected – the classes are tough, but it taught me how to work harder, build a work ethic, and I am coming out with many rich experiences thanks to KCP. This school truly prepares you for higher levels and entrance into Japanese colleges.

I love the way the Minna no Nihongo textbooks were set up. It made finding my weak points in grammar much easier and provided a lot of practice, both in and outside of class. I also really liked the hatsuon readings we would do every day. They really helped improve my speaking and reading ability.

KCP seemed like the most rigorous of the Japanese schools I looked at, with the best staff and facilities.

Leo from Fall 2016

The regular classes were my favorite part I think, since you learn new things every day and get to practice Japanese in the classroom environment.

Most productive was learning and using new grammar.

Janet from 2012

The culture class helped me think about the differences in Japanese culture from American culture.
