I thought the regular classes were excellent and I learned a lot from my teachers!

Nisha from Spring 2017

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

The Kamakura trip was a unique experience and I enjoyed it very much!

Why did you select this program?

Unlike many other Japanese schools in Tokyo, KCP has an American program and American contacts, which made my parents feel safer about sending me.

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

Group sessions were fun because I got to talk to many of my classmates that I normally wouldn't get the chance to speak to outside of class.

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

KCP is an awesome experience and you will get to meet a ton of new people from different countries and make many memories!

If you want a challenge, then this program in definitely what you’re looking for. I came into the program with very basic knowledge of Japanese and am definitely excited about how much I have improved. Learning a language isn’t instant and it takes a while to sink in, but the longer you’re here you become more motivated to utilize what you learn and to continue to progress in your studies. And all of the instructors and office staff are some of the most friendly and approachable people I have ever met. They really make the whole experience quite enjoyable!
