KCP is a great program because of what it has currently. Great teachers, with a good curriculum, allows for a superior learning opportunity and is the main reason why KCP’s students are great at Japanese.

Other students may hate me for saying so, but I feel that having frequent, small tests was very helpful. It’s a little stressful, but having frequent tests helped keep me on my toes as far as studying. When tests are spaced apart, it’s easy to get caught up in everyday life.

To new students I would say, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Even if you do not have enough or any vocabulary to get your question across.
