The speech contest was extremely fun and energetic.

Elizabeth from 2014

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

The speech contest was extremely fun and energetic. I feel all of the students had a chance to try hard, perform for each other and the Sensei, and bond. Also, the group sessions and activities offered to the summer short US students was a great help!

Which co-curriculum classes did you find most satisfying?

I joined the ping pong club and had a lot of fun.

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

The most productive aspect of the program would be the way the classes are structured. The direct method teaching style and only using Japanese as a common language really forces students to grow and learn. There honestly was no least interesting part of the program for me.

Were you pleased with the general living arrangements? Anything you especially liked? Any problems you experienced?

It was great! Shirashi-San is by far the best dorm manager i have ever had (including the dorms I've stayed in at my own college in the US). He had events, was very nice and attentive, and treated us all like grandchildren.

KCP is a great choice if you are looking to improve your Japanese language skills while experiencing everything Japan has to offer. The school will make sure that your experience is enjoyable, and they will do their best to accommodate to your needs. If you have never been to Japan and want to experience studying in this country I highly recommend KCP. They will give you the true ‘Japan school life experience.
