Let’s hear what others have to say about KCP International.

“The number of students, professionals or any individuals migrating to Japan has been on a constant rise. Home to about 900 students per year, KCP welcomes students from all over the globe and strives to address their needs of learning the Japanese language inclusively.

Here at KCP International, students not only gain intensive knowledge about the language but they are equally enlightened about the cultural background of the host country.

The school offers two courses: Intensive Japanese Language and Japanese Culture and Society. Students who enroll in the program are trained to fluently communicate in the Japanese language. Emphasis is placed on all four communication skills—listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

KCP’s teaching strategy draws the attention of numerous aspiring students. While the language course is conducted in entirely in Japanese, English support sessions are available if needed.

KCP’s prime focus is to provide a thorough knowledge of Japan’s language and culture. Lectures coupled with tours to various culturally prominent places in Tokyo allow students to engage in real-world lessons and experiences. Excursions to Kamakura, Asakusa Temple, the Imperial Palace, and a sumo-beya further ignites the knowledge of students on topics like Japanese classical entertainment, customs, business, and religion.

Considering all of the aforementioned aspects and also being a not-for-profit educational foundation, KCP has been granted Gakko Hojin status; a rigorous educational evaluation and accreditation process overseen by the Tokyo metropolitan government ministry.” The Knowledge Review

“Spending the summer in Tokyo, Japan was a life changing experience for many reasons. The KCP International Japanese Language School is a true gem and I consider myself incredibly blessed to have had this opportunity.

KCP provides an intensive language course (which is very manageable if you put the work in!) and many culturally immersive experiences. This school is a great way to learn the Japanese language thoroughly at a quick rate and gain a better understanding and experience of Japanese culture.

On top of the school experience, Tokyo in general is an amazing place to be. Every day in Tokyo was a brilliant new adventure and I cherish every moment I had there. I would recommend anyone to go to Tokyo. “ –  Keira  Griffith, Summer Short- Term 2019
