KCP is a really great program and I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking about studying Japanese in Tokyo. Although intense the sense of achievement by the end of just two and a half months is huge.

I found pair work and small group sessions to be most helpful as I was forced to actually speak in Japanese with others and to learn how to listen to and understand what they were saying. Homework was also very helpful as I was able to discover my weak spots.

I really enjoy all of the classes at KCP.

I really enjoyed the Kamakura trip. I got to know the other US Program students a little better which was really nice! It was also fun to stay a night at a ryokan with everyone.

I liked the Speech contest as well, because it was fun to work with my classmates to come up with and practice our skit. Seeing the other classes’ skits was really cool!
