Because I am a huge fan of research and spreadsheets, I created an excel worksheet comparing numerous Japanese study abroad programs by cost, housing, length of study, and many other comparison points. Overall, KCP came out superior based on the amount of things that you get for the price. After completing the program, I can say choosing KCP was a perfect decision. KCP is a real school — professional teachers, strict grading systems, textbooks – the whole package. KCP proved to be much more than I expected – the classes are tough, but it taught me how to work harder, build a work ethic, and I am coming out with many rich experiences thanks to KCP. This school truly prepares you for higher levels and entrance into Japanese colleges.

I liked how classes are divided into sections. So, one day we focus on speaking and reading and the next day it is grammar and new vocabulary. I didn’t feel overwhelmed.

Explore and adventure as much as you can! Don’t be afraid to fully immerse yourself.

Keira from Summer Short 2019

I loved how much the instructors pushed us to learn but also were very helpful! I very highly valued the time I had outside of class to explore and immerse myself in the culture!

The essay writing classes were useful in helping recall what we learned and making us practice handwritten Japanese in a limited amount of time.

Kevin from Fall 2016

The KCP program has a reputation of being rigorous, and students said they learned a lot in their time here. As my personal goals require me to become functionally fluent and literate in a reasonable amount of time, I chose KCP to help get me there.
