The teachers were excellent and I learned so much from the classes!

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

The culture class field trip to Kamakura! The experience of staying at the Ryokan was very nice and it was a nice time to spend with your friends!

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

KCP Japanese courses are not easy so make sure you are ready to spend time studying. It’s also nice to figure out a healthy balance between studying and doing freetime while living in Japan!

I wanted to be in a major city in Japan and learn Japanese, and this program had good reviews online in addition to being affiliated with several universities that I knew of. There was also a decent amount of information available online from non-official sources, which gave me good information on living arrangements and general life as a student.
