If you’re looking for an intensive course, then KCP is the place to go! Although it was hard work, it was also a lot of fun and I’m very pleased with my current language skill – and I’ve only just finished Level 1! Going out with the class for a final dinner really showed me how much we’d learnt as we had no problems in conveying our feelings even though our only common language was Japanese. I’d come back in a heartbeat.

One of the most interesting aspects of the program was being in a classroom with students from across the world. This forced us to use Japanese and not rely on our native language. In addition to learning about the Japanese culture I was also able to learn a lot about cultures from China, Korea, Brazil, etc.

While the speech contest was fun what I really enjoyed was the time spent preparing for the cheer with my classmates. It gave us time to connect as a class outside of the classroom.

Speak to as many native speakers as you can during your stay in Japan!

Sydney from Summer 2018

Speak to as many native speakers as you can during your stay in Japan. Go to new places outside of school — I found it very helpful to go to local coffee shops, izakaya, and parks to put myself into situations where I could converse with new people. Don’t be shy! If you use what you’ve learned in class outside of the classroom, you’ll have an easier time remembering it under stress.
