Every day in Tokyo is very wonderful.

Degree to which the program met your expectations:


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

The speech contest. Even though I am not the speaker, we practise for the cheering and it brings classmates together. Students in the same class have more opportunities to communicate.

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

Most interesting thing is that I make lots of friends and we hang out together. No least interesting thing. Every day in Tokyo is very wonderful.

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.
