KCP’s Summer (short) term program fit my personal schedule very well. It was also the most professional and affordable program that I could find. It also included a cultural aspect to its education program that I appreciated.

—Allison Hoisl

The most productive and interesting parts of the program were the daily class supplemented by English class. It helped me retain so much of the information. I tried to come up with something that was uninteresting or not productive, but I really can’t think of anything. Nonproductive and KCP don’t fit in the same sentence!

Make the most of being in Tokyo

Kaisu from Summer 2018

I’d also encourage everyone to make the most of being in Tokyo – one of the safest and greatest cities in the world. I’ve learned some spoken Japanese every day since I’ve been only using Japanese everywhere and I’ve rarely spent an evening staying at home here.
The time frame was a good match with my work & study schedule and the location of the school is good as well since it’s close enough to my favorite places in Tokyo.

Jason from 2013

I got to see and live first hand with a Japanese family and also got to practice what I learned in class that day.
