I selected this program because I saw a favorable review for it in my Japanese club’s newsletter, and I had been looking for a study abroad in Tokyo. I also liked how inexpensive the program was and how the offered dormitories, which few other programs did.

—Katie Penvose

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.

I was pleased with the dorm.

Ethan from Fall 2017

In general, I was pleased with the living arrangements; the dorm manager was friendly and helpful, the location is ideal, and the utilities all worked. The wifi was a problem at times.

I really enjoyed the events where we were able to meet with Japanese people and converse with them.

Derrick from Summer Short 2016

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.
