The quality of the school and instructors is top-notch.

Which events or activities did you find the most satisfying and why?

One of the things I enjoyed the most was during one class, Japanese students were brought in to participate in a conversation session during class. Most of our conversation sessions are among KCP students only, but I enjoyed the opportunity to speak with a Japanese student

What were the most productive and interesting aspects of the program for you? The least interesting and productive?

I find the opportunity to speak with students from around the world to be the most productive and interesting part of the program, particularly since the only language that all parties understand is Japanese. This provides an excellent opportunity to practice language skills while being interesting and fun. I can't really pinpoint any one thing as least productive; nearly all of the things we do I see as beneficial.

What did you find most valuable in the Culture Course?

Being able to see the sites discussed in person and investigate them in depth.

Any further thoughts or tips for those considering the program or new KCP students?

It can be intimidating at first to pursue a program like this, especially for long-term study. But while I've been studying at KCP I've never felt like I couldn't overcome challenge I was faced with; the quality of the school and instructors is top-notch.

I don’t think there was a single moment that wasn’t productive for me. There was something to learn from everything during my time in Japan. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity!
