KCP is a very well-organized and professional program.

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

The speech contest was a good way for me to work on something a bit more complicated and long than the things we normally write for class.

Which co-curriculum classes did you find most satisfying?

The cooking clubs were a fun way to practice Japanese with some of the higher classmates while learning about Japanese culture.

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

It's important to me above all that my fundament is now a lot better. I've always found conversations to be difficult because I had a much more limited array of grammatical structures memorized.

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

The most helpful was certainly the ability to listen to someone explain the grammar in a sensible and illuminating fashion.

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

Going to class every day, and the workload, gave me a sense of what living in Japan would be like. I was able to learn Japanese daily, as well as have enough time in the day to study and explore the country.
