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

The Kamakura trip with the culture class was the most satisfying. I think it was very satisfying because in the culture class we were able to learn a lot about the different places we were going to visit, and then when we went to those places they seemed a lot more interesting because we understood their purpose and why they were important.

What were your goals in attending the KCP program?

To challenge myself and improve my Japanese skills as much as I could in just one short semester.

Why did you select this program?

Cost, location, and it best fit into the time restraints that I was working under.

How satisfied were you with the teachers and classroom environment?

Very Satisfied

What activities or materials did you find most helpful (e.g., pair work, drill practice, tests, small group sessions, textbooks, games)?

I’m a bargain shopper so I looked at a lot of different study abroad options in Japan before selecting KCP. I was slightly worried because I literally could not find any bad comments about KCP anywhere online, and that made me suspicious. … But the truth is, KCP is simply the best! I have no complaints at all. For anyone seriously interested in learning Japanese, KCP is fast-paced but really fun. I totally recommend it!
