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

I really liked our trip to Yamanashi and the speech contest. It was so nice seeing a new side of Japan I've never seen before and I'm so glad I challenged my linguistic skills during the contest.

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

Be ready to be challenged academically and always be open to try new things! Whether its traveling to unknown area of Tokyo or tasting food you would never imagine eating, give a shot, you'll never know until you try. And as long as you're super serious with your language studies, you will definitely exceed and succeed in this program!

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!
