I selected it because I wanted a reputable and intensive program that would take a student who’s no longer affiliated with a college. KCP was the only program I found that satisfied this criteria. It also helped a lot that my friend recommended it.

I liked how every day we had a three-minute conversation with a classmate, and when we had to craft our own conversations based on a picture using Level 3 grammar points. All of the textbooks provided are amazing at helping learn the language.

Don’t be afraid to talk to any of the staff members! Even if they aren’t your teacher or aren’t your specific program’s staff member, everyone is really nice and is there to help you get better!

Working with other students was really helpful, especially in group sessions. Group sessions offered the review I really needed to be up to pace with the level I was entering, and I don’t think I would have done as well if I hadn’t had the group sessions. Conversations with native Japanese speakers were also really helpful and exciting.
