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.

I thought that the Japanese psychology lecture was one of the most interesting and eye opening into the culture and differences between Japanese culture and my own.

The Kabuki show, tea ceremony, and Kamakura trip were all amazing.

The explanation of new vocab from the Kanji textbook every day in class was great listening practice, and helped us learn how the new words “fit” into the Japanese language, rather than just memorizing new sounds.

I picked this program because It is intense and I need to be challenged in order to make progress.
