With so much school, is there time for a social life?

Yes, there is. Once you get used to the pace of so much focused learning (and you will!), you may find that it energizes you. Learning in an exciting place often does. If you manage your schedule well and use a little “metacognition” to watch yourself learn and solve challenges, you’ll figure out what you need for studying and what works for fun, for you.

Your fellow students are your best starting pool of fun-companions. The KCP frequently asked questions and other resources, as well as your teachers and KCP staff, will be great sources for what to do for fun. If you’re serious about learning, you’ll naturally find (and make) the right time to relax and explore Japan.
