The club activities were very fun.

Celena from Winter 2016

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

The club activities were very fun. It was the best opportunity to actually utuilize the Japanese skills learned in class in addition to making friends. The Tea Ceremony club was a lovely glance into traditional Japanese culture.

Which co-curriculum classes did you find most satisfying?

I really enjoyed the Japanese culture class on Saturdays.

Why did you select this program?

The price of tuition and housing was very reasonable, as well as the time frame of each term.

What activities or materials did you find most helpful (e.g., pair work, drill practice, tests, small group sessions, textbooks, games)?

Pairwork and working out of the textbooks was the best for me. The frequent tests were a good way to reinforce our studies. The group work wasn't that efficient though.

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

KCPis an intense yet fair Japanese language program. It is almost surprising how much language skills one picks up within such a short time frame. It was both an educational and fun experience.

If you want a challenge, then this program in definitely what you’re looking for. I came into the program with very basic knowledge of Japanese and am definitely excited about how much I have improved. Learning a language isn’t instant and it takes a while to sink in, but the longer you’re here you become more motivated to utilize what you learn and to continue to progress in your studies. And all of the instructors and office staff are some of the most friendly and approachable people I have ever met. They really make the whole experience quite enjoyable!
