Frankly, it seemed like the best. The other programs I looked at were either heavily geared towards Chinese and Korean students or prohibitively expensive. Plus, KCP has a long history and a LOT of alumni who openly praise the program online — and I hope to be among them!

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.

The pace at KCP is challenging but helps me focus.

I was very impressed with the teachers at KCP.

Spencer from Fall 2014

All of my teachers were wonderful and kept class fun and engaging while we learned a great deal. If your goals are to improve your Japanese, learn more about Japanese society, and enjoy doing it, I think that KCP is an excellent choice for a study abroad program.
