The Tanashi dorm was great!

Kamau from Fall 2017

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

i found textboo work, games, and "question and answer" activities most useful during my time.

What did you find most valuable in the Culture Course?

They did a good job exposing us to different aspects of Japanese life and culture. I greatly enjoying the mock tea ceremony we took part in.

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

The rooms are very good and the town is great for students. I wish more students were put here.

KCP is a wonderful program for those looking to, 1) see their Japanese abilities exponentially grow, and 2) to experience the culture hands-on. It’s also a program for those who don’t simply seek to party either. The program’s rigorous and demands attention to your school work, health, and managing time in between. Basically, you live, eat, and breathe a Japanese lifestyle. It’s great.
