Faculty and Staff

We are honored that KCP students think so highly of our faculty and staff.

The main goals of our faculty and staff are for each student to learn Japanese very well and advance to a higher language level. We not only teach Japanese language; we also teach students the Japanese context, so that they better understand and appreciate cultural differences.

supportive japanese instructors

A student has two or three Japanese language instructors for each language course. These instructors are available as needed to answer your language questions and for counseling and support.

In addition:

  • A language program advisor is available to answer questions related to the language courses.
  • A head professor is in charge of the Japanese Culture and Civilization Course.
  • Two student coordinators are available to answer your questions about homestays or dormitories and about life in Japan. They also arrange educational excursions with the culture course as well as additional activities.

All of our supportive staff members take a personal interest in your educational growth. If students have any questions, concerns, or items of interest to discuss, the faculty and staff are available to make their stay in Japan as educationally rewarding as possible.

In their evaluations, students give glowing recommendations to our dedicated, talented Japanese language faculty.

Testimonials

Because I am a huge fan of research and spreadsheets, I created an excel worksheet comparing numerous Japanese study abroad programs by cost, housing, length of study, and many other comparison points. Overall, KCP came out superior based on the amount of things that you get for the price. After completing the program, I can say choosing KCP was a perfect decision. KCP is a real school — professional teachers, strict grading systems, textbooks – the whole package. KCP proved to be much more than I expected – the classes are tough, but it taught me how to work harder, build a work ethic, and I am coming out with many rich experiences thanks to KCP. This school truly prepares you for higher levels and entrance into Japanese colleges.
