This program has been awesome, and I learned a lot about Japanese language and culture within such a short period of time. The teachers are very patient and they try their best to encourage everyone’s participation by making the class fun. I would definitely recommend this school to other people who wants to go to Japan to study Japanese.

Other students may hate me for saying so, but I feel that having frequent, small tests was very helpful. It’s a little stressful, but having frequent tests helped keep me on my toes as far as studying. When tests are spaced apart, it’s easy to get caught up in everyday life.

KCP is doing a superb job.

The teachers are all very qualified and the direct-method teaching has been very effective at making me think in Japanese in order to communicate.

The Kamakura trip was fascinating, I really enjoyed seeing all the shrines and temples, and getting to stay at a ryokan.I loved the Edo Tokyo Museum, and would have like to go back (and will, if I get a chance to return to Japan).
