KCP’s Summer (short) term program fit my personal schedule very well. It was also the most professional and affordable program that I could find. It also included a cultural aspect to its education program that I appreciated.

—Allison Hoisl

One of the most interesting aspects of the program was being in a classroom with students from across the world. This forced us to use Japanese and not rely on our native language. In addition to learning about the Japanese culture I was also able to learn a lot about cultures from China, Korea, Brazil, etc.

The cultural class trips were very fun; I enjoyed visiting Kamakura and Enoshima.

I’ve never had Japanese classes every day, so I think speaking Japanese a lot during class helped. Everyone, teachers/staff and students, were so nice and helpful.

This is a school that can truly help anyone improve their Japanese. Not only do you meet new people but those people become lifetime friends.
