Readings- doukai - I like how the teacher went over the text and explained each part.

Stephanie from Fall 2015

Why did you select this program?

I want to study abroad in Tokyo Japan. The program was cheap and had a built in support system in case I had any problems.

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

Katakana and Dictation drills I liked. I wasn't good at it, but it was helpful for listening. Readings- doukai - I like how the teacher went over the text and explained each part. Speaking with the Japanese guest.

What did you find most valuable in the Culture Course?

The experience I had in Yamanashi: seeing Mt. Fuji, staying at a ryokan The discussion we were allowed in class was kind of interesting

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

I appreciate that my teachers were willing to help me outside of class. I was concerned with my low speaking and listening skills and they did their best to help me. Part of wish I was there longer, but the other part realize this program wasn't for me as I wasn't able to focus and improve in areas I wanted.

Testimonials

The most important reason why I selected the program was for its affordability. As a graduate, I am paying for the program through my own personal funds without the help of any university financial aid or scholarships. Affordability and value of the program were essential in my decision, and KCP has exceeded my expectations.
