Get out there and learn.

Stop speaking English. It is hard, but do it. Even with English friends, don’t let it happen.

The quality of the school and instructors is top-notch.

Adam from 2012

It can be intimidating at first to pursue a program like this, especially for long-term study. But while I’ve been studying at KCP I’ve never felt like I couldn’t overcome challenge I was faced with.

Spend as much time studying as you spend time playing.

Shenelle from 2012

The most productive for me was the culture class, because I was able to learn many Japanese cultural aspects that you just don’t learn in the normal class.

You're only going to learn Japanese if you really put the effort to study hard.

Steven from 2012

I enjoyed the day we went to the Udon shop and had lunch. That was a very simple thing, but I learned a lot.

If you’re considering KCP, just sign up. If you have to, save up for it. It was worth it. I continue to learn the language, I continue to make new friends, I continue to find new, unfamiliar and exciting places and all of this was possible because I made the decision to learn at KCP. I have met some really great people (friends as well as teachers) who have helped me grow as a person. I’m thankful for this time I’ve spent here. It really has gone by too fast but I will forever remember the memories I’ve made here.
