I found kanji to be one of my struggles but the in class explanations of kanji and showing the proper stoke orders helped me immensely.

Aaliyah from Spring 2016

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

I enjoyed the field trip activities that were given to us because it allowed us to experience some parts of Japan that we would experience if we were on vacation but with the help of knowledgable teachers and KCP employees.

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

The most productive was the in class teaching style, I enjoyed that they aimed to keep it relatively similar to the regular Japanese teaching style.

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

I found kanji to be one of my struggles but the in class explanations of kanji and showing the proper stoke orders helped me immensely.

Testimonials

KCP is a wonderful program for those looking to, 1) see their Japanese abilities exponentially grow, and 2) to experience the culture hands-on. It’s also a program for those who don’t simply seek to party either. The program’s rigorous and demands attention to your school work, health, and managing time in between. Basically, you live, eat, and breathe a Japanese lifestyle. It’s great.
