KCP students: a global village

Most KCP students are from other Asian countries such as Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Taiwan. Studying with a diverse student body contributes to the unique KCP experience. In today’s global village, it is vital to appreciate the cultural practices, politico-economics, and histories of countries different from your own. At KCP International Japanese Language School, students from different cultures, with distinct languages and traditions, can learn the Japanese language and culture together . . . and grow in their understanding of each other. Many Asian students in the program are genuinely interested in American life and culture, so there is plenty of opportunity for spirited social exchange.

Testimonials

Not only did I have a great time at KCP, but the improvement I’ve witnessed in my Japanese proficiency is astounding. I still can’t quite believe I’ve learned so much in such a short time. Although I’m sad that I’m leaving by the end of this term, I’ll always have fond memories of my time here. I am truly grateful to all the staff, especially the instructors, as well as my fellow classmates for making my time here exceptional. I highly and without hesitation recommend KCP International Japanese Language School to anyone looking to learn Japanese.
