The teachers are some of the best I've ever had in my academic career.

Bethany from Spring 2018

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

The homework given was surprisingly very helpful for practice of the grammar learned in class. The teachers are some of the best I've ever had in my academic career, and their help and styles really kept my learning and interest on track. The least interesting would be at home kanji memorization, but that is unavoidable.

What activities or materials did you find most helpful (e.g., pair work, drill practice, tests, small group sessions, textbooks, games)?

The textbooks were excellent and constant conversation practice increased my comfortability in speaking the language.

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

Studying at KCP was one of the best decisions I ever made. Do not be hestitant if you are willing to study hard for your goals because it is a wonderful program.

In general, I think the KCP program is really great and I’m very glad I decided to do it. It was a lot of work, but I learned a lot, met many interesting people from all over the world, and got to have a very different experience of Japan than the normal tourist.
