Countdown to KCP’s Spring 2017 Application Deadline

Cherry blossoms in full bloom, hanami parties left and right, and an array of festivals to take part in. Spring is the perfect time to visit Japan. There is no better place to admire and experience the beauty of the season than with all the lush foliage Japan has to offer, as well as the many events that welcome spring. KCP Spring 2017 application deadline is January 10, only a few days away! Don’t miss out on your chance to experience the beauty of Japan’s unique culture, history, sights, the people, and everything else it has to offer.

Here’s what our students have to say about KCP and Japan:

“I felt that class in general was very productive and that everything I learned I could apply outside of class. I found the conversation practice to be particularly interesting since I got to speak with other students from different countries and hear different perspective on topics.” –  Terry Chan, Spring 2015

“These courses were incredibly informative. Each professor was more interesting than the last and gave an in-depth look at many of the multi-faceted aspects of Japanese culture. This is exactly the kind of thing students need. More exploration of this beautiful country, its people and its culture.”  – William Gomez, Spring 2016

“I particularly enjoyed the culture classes and the BBQ. The culture classes I found very interesting as I have never really learned about traditional Japanese customs. My favorites were the Kamakura trip, the Asakusa Sanja matsuri, and the kabuki. The BBQ was just a fun day and a really good chance to bond with classmates.” – Yuna Murayama, Spring 2013

“Not only did I have a great time at KCP, but the improvement I’ve witnessed in my Japanese proficiency is astounding. I still can’t quite believe I’ve learned so much in such a short time.” – Suhaib Sarmad – Spring 2014

“Without a doubt, your Japanese will improve while attending KCP, but the extent to which it will depends on you. Those who choose homestay invariably will improve speaking and listening comprehension as living with Japanese speakers is a sure way to improve. Balancing schoolwork and exploring Tokyo can be difficult as you’ll want to hang out with friends and discover cool places but also maintain your grades and study for tests. Take advantage of KCP’s resources such as the English support class and be sure to confirm things with your teachers after class. Making friends with the other international students is one of the funnest part of KCP as you’ll not only practice more Japanese, but learn about other cultures and have friends worldwide once you return home.” – Sophia Warren, Spring 2016
