I selected this program because it allows me to use my student loans to attend, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to have this experience. I also wanted a challenge and to improve my fluency as fast as possible. The pace at KCP is challenging but helps me focus.

No matter if you are “悪い学生” or “日本語が上手” [good student or not-so-good student] KCP welcomes its international students and provides an amazing experience for learning Japanese. The class style is just like a Japanese school environment where students have responsibilities to uphold. Teachers are so kind and cool and inspiring. Studying at KCP made wish I didn’t have to go back home.

The trip to Yamanashi was amazing. We got to see a peach farm and although Mt. Fuji was covered by clouds, the countryside was still a beautiful sight.

The most productive were the teaching styles used at KCP. I was able to learn much easier than I have in the past when using different books and teaching styles. Everything about the program was interesting and I don’t have a negative thing to say about it.

Bus trip to Edowonderland. It was very fun to go and learn about the Edo period in Japan, as I’d always enjoyed the aesthetic.
