I don’t think there was a single moment that wasn’t productive for me. There was something to learn from everything during my time in Japan. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity!

—Beatriz Gonon

The first day of class may seem a little intimidating, especially due to the fact that most of your classmates won’t be able to speak English. However everyone is there to learn and have a fun time doing so, so just remember to take it easy and make a bunch of friends! By the end of my quarter here at KCP, everyone in my class were friends and whenever we had presentations it didn’t seem like such a big deal because we all knew each other.
