Which events or activities did you find the most satisfying and why?

The bus trip I think was the most interesting to learning at KCP. I was able to interact with students of different levels as well as learn about a part of Japans history. I hope that there are more trips like this in the future.

Which co-curriculum classes did you find most satisfying?

Level 1 Survival Japanese with Saito-sensei

What were the most productive and interesting aspects of the program for you? The least interesting and productive?

The most productive and interesting point would be learning Kanji. The was that KCP teaches it to you in small amounts makes it easier to comprehend. The least would have to be the listening kaiwa at the end of each chapter before the homework. It was helpful, but difficult.

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

I found the in class drills and exercises the most helpful. They were fun, and at the same time I was learning. In addition, the in class pronunciation worksheets.
