I highly recommend KCP for its focused and encouraging program. The opportunity to practice speaking and comprehending Japanese during class, in conversation sessions, and in day-to-day life was an invaluable experience for which I am very grateful. KCP’s staff and instructors are nothing but helpful and there is no question that they are dedicated to the dissemination of the Japanese language. 

—Gabriel Wilkinson

I think the best aspect would be how quickly the class moves. Also, activities that allow students to meet native Japanese speakers is a very good idea (i.e. the curry class). I would actually rather have more events like this even sacrificing tour-type excursions because meeting native speakers and befriending them can open up far more opportunities.

I want to thank all my teachers for their hard work, dedication, and patience.

Breann from Summer Short 2015

I hope to be a teacher one day and I was happy to learn from their example. I also want to thank the KCP office staff for their assistance! They were always available and willing to help us with an array of problems and offer recommendations to make our stay better.

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

Kevin from Spring 2019

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.
