It was a wonderful experience!

Brittni from 2014

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

The Kamakura field trip was an event that I will remember for the rest of my life. It was a wonderful experience!

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

Going over the explanations of the stroke order and different strokes of writing kanji was incredibly helpful. They did not teach any of that in the American schools I went to in the five years I have learned Japanese.

Where did you reside over the course of this program?


Where did you live?


Were you pleased with the general living arrangements? Anything you especially liked? Any problems you experienced?

I have been enthralled with my living arrangement. My apartment has been very quiet, clean and overall convenient place to live despite being an hour away from School. I love how spacious my room is! Thank you very much for allowing me to stay here!

Any further thoughts or tips for those considering the program or new KCP students?

Go to every class and pay attention. Do not be tempted to only talk to people you know in your home language, if you push yourself to use Japanese every day, you will see results!

Any other comments or suggestions?

I would really like to thank everyone who goes to work and does their best every day at KCP. Finally coming to Japan has been a lifelong dream of mine and I am glad that it has been such a positive and enriching experience. I hope to come back soon and teach English in the hopes that I will be able to make a similar impact on someone else's life. Thank you very much!

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.
