KCP is a great program because of what it has currently. Great teachers, with a good curriculum, allows for a superior learning opportunity and is the main reason why KCP’s students are great at Japanese.

—Derrick Leong

I was surprised by how much I LOOKED FORWARD to class every day. Just sign up for it. The earlier the better. This was the best decision I made in my learning of Japanese.

I thought overall it was very productive, but the level of independent study is very rigorous.

I think learning alongside my Chinese and Korean classmates was the most interesting aspect of the program. I made some great friends and our only language in common is Japanese!

The room was spacious and quiet and comfortably cooled, the rules were fair, the cafeteria was nice, and the dorm manager and his wife were some of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I truly have no complaints for my dorm experience.
