In general, I think the KCP program is really great and I’m very glad I decided to do it. It was a lot of work, but I learned a lot, met many interesting people from all over the world, and got to have a very different experience of Japan than the normal tourist.

The best is definitely the class environment, I always feel comfortable with either of the three teachers that cycle in a week and I look forward to practicing my Japanese every day.
