Classes were the most productive aspect of the program, because I was able to learn and improve my Japanese.

Kevin from Spring 2019

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

Kamakura trip, because I felt that the area was very interesting and I learned a lot.

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

Small group activities and making conversations were useful because we were forced to speak our own Japanese sentences, rather than just reading from the textbook.

Any suggestions for improving class activities or materials?

Sometimes, repeating after the teacher became excessive and tiring.

If you’re considering KCP, just sign up. If you have to, save up for it. It was worth it. I continue to learn the language, I continue to make new friends, I continue to find new, unfamiliar and exciting places and all of this was possible because I made the decision to learn at KCP. I have met some really great people (friends as well as teachers) who have helped me grow as a person. I’m thankful for this time I’ve spent here. It really has gone by too fast but I will forever remember the memories I’ve made here.
