Daniel from 2012

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

All of the events were fun and informative. I especially liked the Kamakura trip.

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

The classes were very helpful, especially the group discussions and conversation work we did in class. I greatly appreciated the private help I also received from each of my teachers.

How satisfied were you with the teachers and classroom environment?

Very Satisfied

Where did you reside over the course of this program?


Where did you live?

Kasai Dorm

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

I loved living in a dorm by myself. No problems to speak of.

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

I would try to get involved with at least one non-KCP activity that allows you to meet people and socialize in a non-school setting. Volunteering is one way to do this. Joining a club or learning a new skill in Japanese might be another way.

I selected the KCP language program because I wanted to immerse myself in Japanese culture. I wanted to improve my Japanese, and there are glowing reviews of the teachers at KCP. The final verdict was decided when I looked up how much the program costs, and I realized that the short-term summer program is significantly more affordable than many other programs.
