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.

Pair work was definitely helpful, all the textbooks we used were really helpful as well. The way that Minna no Nihongo is formatted really helps students grasp how to use new grammar and how to correctly use it.

The amount of studying required is intense and you will need to study very hard. You will also need to make an effort to get out and see Japan because there is always more to be studying it can be hard to make time to see Japan but it’s part of the experience.
