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

I am overwhelmingly pleased with the dorm. While it is fairly far from the school, the dorm manager has been extremely kind and generous with all of us here, holding parties and interacting with us whenever we see him. No issues ever came up.

Any further thoughts or tips for those considering the program or new KCP students?

Use the Japanese you learn everyday. There's no point in coming to Japan and not using the grammar and vocab with those who around you, whether they be international students or Japanese people you see everyday. It's a great opportunity to use what you learn while also making social connections with those around you.

If you’re considering KCP, just sign up. If you have to, save up for it. It was worth it. I continue to learn the language, I continue to make new friends, I continue to find new, unfamiliar and exciting places and all of this was possible because I made the decision to learn at KCP. I have met some really great people (friends as well as teachers) who have helped me grow as a person. I’m thankful for this time I’ve spent here. It really has gone by too fast but I will forever remember the memories I’ve made here.
