Speak to as many native speakers as you can during your stay in Japan!

Sydney from Summer 2018

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

I think the time building listening and conversational skills helped me best remember the course content. Using language in a meaningful, practical way is the best way to retain information.

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

Speak to as many native speakers as you can during your stay in Japan. Go to new places outside of school -- I found it very helpful to go to local coffee shops, izakaya, and parks to put myself into situations where I could converse with new people. Don't be shy! If you use what you've learned in class outside of the classroom, you'll have an easier time remembering it under stress.

KCP is a really great program and I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking about studying Japanese in Tokyo. Although intense the sense of achievement by the end of just two and a half months is huge.
