This program has been awesome, and I learned a lot about Japanese language and culture within such a short period of time. The teachers are very patient and they try their best to encourage everyone’s participation by making the class fun. I would definitely recommend this school to other people who wants to go to Japan to study Japanese.

The most productive and interesting parts of the program were the daily class supplemented by English class. It helped me retain so much of the information. I tried to come up with something that was uninteresting or not productive, but I really can’t think of anything. Nonproductive and KCP don’t fit in the same sentence!

I really like the class set up.

Mallory from Summer Short 2015

KCP is NOT for people who want to come here to hang out in Tokyo and study a bit on the side.Its very intensive and requires a lot of work.But if you put in an effort you can get great results. Coming here has taught me so much about Japanese and about who i am, and it has been one of the best decisions i have ever made.

The most productive and interesting aspects of the program.

Gattlin from Winter 2018

Just having everyone participate. I felt like it really helped make sure everyone would get a grasp on the material. Also just noticing stuff that we learned in class throughout Japan.
