I am really happy I decided to study at KCP.

Alice from Winter 2013

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

I love that the school is in the heart of Tokyo and that all the classes are in Japanese. Since the classes are taught only in Japanese it pushes me to study more.

Where did you reside over the course of this program?

Dormitory

Where did you live?

Kasai

Were you pleased with the general living arrangements? Anything you especially liked? Any problems you experienced?

I loved the Kasai dorm. It is spacious and has a beautiful view. The only problem is the constant strong winds, construction, but that can't be helped, and the distance I have to travel everyday to school. Also, the dorm manager is amazingly nice and she always greets me very warmly whenever I see her.

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

1.) Be considerate to the people around you. Whether it be to neighbors, classmates, or other civilians. 2.) Always be respectful. Any negativity will reflect badly not only on KCP, but it may give foreigners (as a whole) a bad reputation. 3.) Stay positive. Adapting can be difficult, but keeping positive really makes a difference. 5.) Make friends with people from different countries. 4.) Remember to have fun!

Any other comments or suggestions?

I am really happy I decided to study at KCP. It has been a difficult journey, but I have learned a lot. I would love to come back to KCP to continue my studies.

I loved meeting new people in my classes and being able to practice Japanese almost every day. I loved living in Japan as if I were Japanese and absorbing the culture.
