What were the most productive and interesting aspects of the program for you?

Jordan from Summer 2017

Which events or activities did you find the most satisfying and why?

The edo period museum excursion was the most satisfying for me since I got to learn about an important time period of Japanese history as well as what the culture was like at that time and that influence on today's culture.

What activities or materials did you find most helpful (e.g., pair work, drill practice, tests, small group sessions, textbooks, games)?

I liked how every day we had a 3 minute conversation with a classmate, as well as when we had to craft our own conversations based on a picture using Level 3 grammar points. All of the textbooks provided are amazing at helping learn the language. Outside of class, I usually watch Japanese television to help learn some new words or understand the flow of the language better.

What did you find most valuable in the Culture Course?

The structure of the Japanese psychology culture course definitely. Each slide had a new piece of information.

Were you pleased with the general living arrangements? Anything you especially liked? Any problems you experienced?

No problems, I enjoyed everything about the living arrangements. Two great super markets close by, convenience stores, close to the station which is close to KCP. Overall the living arrangements are amazing.

I highly recommend KCP for its focused and encouraging program. The opportunity to practice speaking and comprehending Japanese during class, in conversation sessions, and in day-to-day life was an invaluable experience for which I am very grateful. KCP’s staff and instructors are nothing but helpful and there is no question that they are dedicated to the dissemination of the Japanese language.
