Allison from Summer Short 2014

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

The school field trip for summer short term students was extremely informative and fun. I also appreciated the many different outlets KCP was able to provide to its students to experience Japanese culture. For example, the kabuki discount, company field trips and cooking class.

What were your goals in attending the KCP program?

My goal was to be able to experience Japan and gain experiences and knowledge that would help me to become a more open minded individual.

Why did you select this program?

KCP's summer short term program fit my personal schedule very well. It was also the most professional and affordable program that I could find. It also included a cultural aspect to its education program that I appreciated.

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

Conversation practice was an extremely efficient form of practice and a reassuring confidence booster. KCP tests are extremely strict so that was a great way to perfect what we learned.

I selected this program because I saw a favorable review for it in my Japanese club’s newsletter, and I had been looking for a study abroad in Tokyo. I also liked how inexpensive the program was and how the offered dormitories, which few other programs did.
