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!

I really in enjoyed pair work and small groups because we were able to utilize our language skills. If we did come across something that one student might not understand, the instructor was there to clarify any questions. It also provided a good setting for getting to know my classmates better without the stress of coming up with sentences in front of the class, which can sometimes be a little nerve-wracking.

I intensively learned a language for barely 2 months!

Most productive was the fact that I intensively learned a language for barely 2 months and was able to make of most Japanese conversations in certain scenarios. Interesting was Japanese way of life compared to America’s.

The Yamanashi trip was really special to me. I was able to bond with a lot of my new friends.

I was surprised I had my own bath in Ikebukuro dorm. There aren’t enough pictures of the living arrangements on the websites so most students are really surprised by how nice the dorms are. Overall I really liked it.
