This program offered everything that I had been looking for from a Japanese language school

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

The most productive aspect was that throughout the day at school I always had access to a place to study, a place to eat/take a break and I could always find a teacher to ask for help.

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

The Saturday before the final there is always a review day which I find to be very helpful.

Any suggestions for improving class activities or materials?

I would like more time to speak with the other students in class.

Any further thoughts or tips for those considering the program or new KCP students?

Try to make friends with students from other countries!

KCP is a wonderful program for those looking to, 1) see their Japanese abilities exponentially grow, and 2) to experience the culture hands-on. It’s also a program for those who don’t simply seek to party either. The program’s rigorous and demands attention to your school work, health, and managing time in between. Basically, you live, eat, and breathe a Japanese lifestyle. It’s great.
