I thought the bus trip was fantastic.

Ross from Summer Short 2015

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

I thought the bus trip was fantastic. It was nice to have a chance to get out of Tokyo and see the country side. Especially since Summer Short term students don't have a lot of chances to do that.

What were your goals in attending the KCP program?

Drastically increasing my competency at Japanese.

Why did you select this program?

Because of the intensity of the course, and it delivered.

Any suggestions for improving class activities or materials?

I find that learning Kanji by the radicals help a lot, thats how I studied my Kanji outside of the classroom.

I wanted to be in a major city in Japan and learn Japanese, and this program had good reviews online in addition to being affiliated with several universities that I knew of. There was also a decent amount of information available online from non-official sources, which gave me good information on living arrangements and general life as a student.
