In general, I think the KCP program is really great and I’m very glad I decided to do it. It was a lot of work, but I learned a lot, met many interesting people from all over the world, and got to have a very different experience of Japan than the normal tourist.

Practice worksheets for the grammar was the most helpful. It allowed me to try and apply my knowledge that I learned in class to make sure I fully understood the way particles are supposed to be applied. Talking in groups in class was also very helpful for becoming less shy with the language, since it can be scary to try and speak a language which I didn’t know very well.

The Culture Course is a valuable experience

Siena from Fall 2017

I loved the tea ceremony very much. I don’t think I would have been able to learn about a tea ceremony like that otherwise. I very much enjoyed it.

I liked the BBQ and the Yamanashi trip because it helped us learn about the culture of Japan and the other students and brought us together.

Jordan from Fall 2018

The most interesting were talking to each other in class and building our speaking skills.
