Definitely a good choice for anyone who is serious about learning Japanese thoroughly and at a fast pace.

Seamus from Fall 2014

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

I really enjoyed the Kanazawa trip, especially since it was not really a place a I would have traveled to on my own.

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

I mostly only participated in the general Japanese classes and US special studies class, so I can only speak for that. But I enjoyed them both. I also enjoyed the trip to Kanazawa.

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

Definitely a good choice for anyone who is serious about learning Japanese thoroughly and at a fast pace. I learned more in 3 months here than I did in probably the equivalent of 2 years in the US. All the teachers I have had thus far have been great, and the students are all nice and very self-motivated. It is a very good atmosphere.

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.
