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.

The most productive and interesting aspects of the program was actually going to class, which isn’t usually the case —haha. The teachers were very funny and down-to-earth, while also teaching a lot of practical sentence structures and giving us plenty of opportunity to practice spoken Japanese. I feel that I’ve had THE best teachers to learn from and the best classmates to study with at KCP for a language learning environment.

The full immersion technique was effective.

Amanda from Winter 2012

Just taking classes isn’t enough. You have to be proactive about using your Japanese.

I enjoyed the trip to Yamanashi. It's an area that I wouldn't have thought of to visit before and it was really nice to get out of Tokyo for the day.

Sarah from Summer Short 2015

I thought the two week group session was a great way to have an intense review before the main classes started. While I didn’t enjoy the hours, I think having that much of concentrated Japanese studying really helped me improve.
