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

I am overwhelmingly pleased with the dorm. While it is fairly far from the school, the dorm manager has been extremely kind and generous with all of us here, holding parties and interacting with us whenever we see him. No issues ever came up.

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

Use the Japanese you learn everyday. There's no point in coming to Japan and not using the grammar and vocab with those who around you, whether they be international students or Japanese people you see everyday. It's a great opportunity to use what you learn while also making social connections with those around you.

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.
