Living in Japan in itself is a great experience overall.

Degree to which the program met your expectations:


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

Bus Trip School Event. Even though the weather did not cooperate, but we all had fun. Classmates got to know each other a lot better.

Which co-curriculum classes did you find most satisfying?

Conversation Class, it allows the students to practice their speaking ability and meet new people.

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

Most interesting aspect is that students are from all over the world and we can only communicate in Japanese to understand each other. Living in Japan in itself is a great experience overall.

Where did you reside over the course of this program?


Where did you live?

Minami Kasai

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

Besides from the walk to the train station, everything is above expectation. The dorm is clean and all the amenities are suitable for single person living without distracting the neighbors. The internet is especially great, I could not have survived without internet connection for 3 months.

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

Understand the Japanese way of separating the trash. It is really a complicating and confusing task for foreigners.

Any other comments or suggestions?

I would suggest KCP to anyone, it is a great language school and all the teachers are friendly and helpful.

I selected it because I wanted a reputable and intensive program that would take a student who’s no longer affiliated with a college. KCP was the only program I found that satisfied this criteria. It also helped a lot that my friend recommended it.
