KCP is a wonderful program for those looking to, 1) see their Japanese abilities exponentially grow, and 2) to experience the culture hands-on. It’s also a program for those who don’t simply seek to party either. The program’s rigorous and demands attention to your school work, health, and managing time in between. Basically, you live, eat, and breathe a Japanese lifestyle. It’s great.

Tests were actually very helpful. They provide the pressure for me to more extensively study the materials that we were given, and if I get questions wrong those help point out to me which concepts I need to strengthen or have memorized incorrectly.

—Nathan Wong

I found pair work and small groups sessions to be most helpful as I was forced to actually speak in Japanese with others and to learn how to listen to and understand what they were saying.

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

Sydney from Summer 2018

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.
