Choosing KCP was largely to do with the ease of application. A lot of other summer courses required a lot of paperwork and recommendations and transcripts that are a big pain to gather. But KCP’s application process was very easy and self-explanatory! Also, the student life photos looked interesting!

—Sabrina Greene

I love the way the Minna no Nihongo textbooks were set up. It made finding my weak points in grammar much easier and provided a lot of practice, both in and outside of class. I also really liked the hatsuon readings we would do every day. They really helped improve my speaking and reading ability.
