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.

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.

KCP provided the focus that I wanted.

Mary from 2013

Once you are able to make friends from your class and outside of your own country, it really helps you learn the language better when you’re forced to use it in order to have fun and communicate. It helps a lot in class and outside of class.

The quality of education KCP offers is excellent and it is not an opportunity to be wasted.

Sam from Spring 2017

The intensity of the program was a good challenge for me. Meeting and communicating with my classmates using only Japanese as the unifying language was also very rewarding.
