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

For me, the best part of the program is simply the quality of study. Most teachers are very effective with their time, and really hammer as much into students as they can. The least interesting part is that, since the first semester, there has not been much supplementary material related to culture. It makes KCP a bit dry at points.

If you want a challenge, then this program in definitely what you’re looking for. I came into the program with very basic knowledge of Japanese and am definitely excited about how much I have improved. Learning a language isn’t instant and it takes a while to sink in, but the longer you’re here you become more motivated to utilize what you learn and to continue to progress in your studies. And all of the instructors and office staff are some of the most friendly and approachable people I have ever met. They really make the whole experience quite enjoyable!
