I highly recommend KCP for its focused and encouraging program. The opportunity to practice speaking and comprehending Japanese during class, in conversation sessions, and in day-to-day life was an invaluable experience for which I am very grateful. KCP’s staff and instructors are nothing but helpful and there is no question that they are dedicated to the dissemination of the Japanese language.

The vocabulary and grammar learning I find fun and useful. It is amazing to see one’s progress first hand as you are able to carry out more and more complex conversations. KCP was great and lots of fun I’d love to come back and continue to take courses.

The extracurricular classes were the most interesting. I also found the school trip to Yamanashi quite informative and interesting.

Get ready for intensive language study. Also, prepare to get disappointed when you don’t quite meet your expectations, but surpassing that makes it all the better. The staff is super helpful, so don’t hesitate if you have any concerns or questions.

Manage your time efficiently, especially if you want to both enjoy home stay life and do well in class.

I found my Japanese improving significantly through living with my host family, since what I learn in class could be practiced right away. Not only could I have a closer look at the Japanese culture and people, we made unforgettable bonds.
