I really enjoyed this experience.

Joy from Spring 2013

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

The Kamakura trip because I enjoyed all the historic places we were able to see. To learn about the ways of life back then in Japan was amazing.

Why did you select this program?

I felt that this program was going to fit everything I wanted in a study abroad, and I was right this program is amazing.

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

Everything was a experience for me. All of this program was amazing.

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

I found the pair work with the students who don't speak English to be helpful because I have no choice but to speak Japanese.

Any suggestions for improving class activities or materials?

I thought the ways of teaching and all the activities were great. No improvement needed. Keep up the good work.

Any other comments or suggestions?

I really enjoyed this experience. To see another country and learn the ways of life as which they live is a experience that I will carry with me into my next chapter in life.

KCP is a wonderful program for those looking to, 1) see their Japanese abilities exponentially grow, and 2) to experience the culture hands-on. It’s also a program for those who don’t simply seek to party either. The program’s rigorous and demands attention to your school work, health, and managing time in between. Basically, you live, eat, and breathe a Japanese lifestyle. It’s great.
