It was a very convenient program length/dates and the cost was one of the best I’d ever seen.

—Kay Hood

The most productive and interesting aspects of the program was actually going to class, which isn’t usually the case —haha. The teachers were very funny and down-to-earth, while also teaching a lot of practical sentence structures and giving us plenty of opportunity to practice spoken Japanese. I feel that I’ve had THE best teachers to learn from and the best classmates to study with at KCP for a language learning environment.

I enjoyed going to Yamanashi, TEPIA, and the sushi-making workshop. It was really nice to bring what we learned in the classroom out into the real world.

I deeply enjoyed joining the Koto and Utau Clubs. It has always been my dream to learn how to play an Asian zither instrument so I was very excited to go to the Koto club. After only having 4 sessions to practice the Koto, I was so delighted that me and my friends were able to play “Sakura.”
