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

This program is very intense and will take up a lot of your time studying. This is for serious students only, but it is very effective for those who want to learn Japanese seriously and efficiently. It is definitely one of the greatest programs I know.

Choosing KCP was largely to do with the ease of application. A lot of other summer courses required a lot of paperwork and recommendations and transcripts that are a big pain to gather. But KCP’s application process was very easy and self-explanatory! Also, the student life photos looked interesting!
