What were the most productive and interesting aspects of the program for you? The least interesting and productive?

the most productive and interesting aspects of the program for me was the culture classes. learning about the Japanese beliefs on life really truly opened my eyes and head it makes me want to find out more about the Japanese culture.

What activities or materials did you find most helpful (e.g., pair work, drill practice, tests, small group sessions, textbooks, games)?

The materials that I found most helpful was the mini games and pair work. the reason I say this is because with the mini games helps you understand a little more clearer of what going on in the class and for the pair work it makes the japanese language stick in your head.

What did you find most valuable in the Culture Course?

the thing I found the most valuable in the culture course was how things are run in japan, from what go`s on inside a household to producing an anime.

KCP is a wonderful program for those looking to, 1) see their Japanese abilities exponentially grow, and 2) to experience the culture hands-on. It’s also a program for those who don’t simply seek to party either. The program’s rigorous and demands attention to your school work, health, and managing time in between. Basically, you live, eat, and breathe a Japanese lifestyle. It’s great.
