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

I enjoyed most of the events but the best was the bus trip to Nikko because everyone in the school went and we were able to have fun together while throwing ninja stars at stuff. :)

Why did you select this program?

Comparatively inexpensive and more intensive than a normal university where one would be taking a wider variety of classes.

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

I think the best aspect would be how quickly the class moves. Also, activities that allow students to meet native Japanese speakers is a very good idea (i.e. the curry class). I would actually rather have more events like this even sacrificing tour-type excursions because meeting native speakers and befriending them can open up far more opportunities.

Because I am a huge fan of research and spreadsheets, I created an excel worksheet comparing numerous Japanese study abroad programs by cost, housing, length of study, and many other comparison points. Overall, KCP came out superior based on the amount of things that you get for the price. After completing the program, I can say choosing KCP was a perfect decision. KCP is a real school — professional teachers, strict grading systems, textbooks – the whole package. KCP proved to be much more than I expected – the classes are tough, but it taught me how to work harder, build a work ethic, and I am coming out with many rich experiences thanks to KCP. This school truly prepares you for higher levels and entrance into Japanese colleges.
