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

I enjoyed all of them!! It was a great language experience and cultural experience. Especially the trip to Yamanashi, it was so fun and the staff were amazing as well. I want to go back to KCP and see all the teachers again!!

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

The most interesting was just learning Japanese and getting to practice. I never found anything uninteresting or unproductive.

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

The daily quizzes and learning six kanji a day was very helpful especially now that I'm taking Japanese 200 I feel more prepared in class and I found the small group sessions were also helpful as well.

If you want a challenge, then this program in definitely what you’re looking for. I came into the program with very basic knowledge of Japanese and am definitely excited about how much I have improved. Learning a language isn’t instant and it takes a while to sink in, but the longer you’re here you become more motivated to utilize what you learn and to continue to progress in your studies. And all of the instructors and office staff are some of the most friendly and approachable people I have ever met. They really make the whole experience quite enjoyable!
