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

The school trips were the most fun. These took place once per term but they were extremely fun. Allowed for students, teachers and other classes to get together and strengthen relationships.

Why did you select this program?

I selected this program because I wanted language immersion and KCP offered just that. When I attended the school it was I hoped for and it even went beyond my expectations. I was very satisfied.

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

The most productive was the full immersion of Japanese. Teachers spent a lot of time with the students helping them understand the material. Classes were very engaging which helped with the learning process. The least productive was that the school could have called Japanese guests more often and allowed for more conversations with them. Overall, KCP is an excellent institution in providing the right track for students interested in learning Japanese and culture.

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.
