I love that the school is in the heart of Tokyo and that all the classes are in Japanese. Since the classes are taught only in Japanese it pushes me to study more.

One of the most interesting aspects of the program was being in a classroom with students from across the world. This forced us to use Japanese and not rely on our native language. In addition to learning about the Japanese culture I was also able to learn a lot about cultures from China, Korea, Brazil, etc.

KCP is definitely an effective program if you want to improve your Japanese and are willing to put in the time and effort that they expect. For those with some knowledge of Japanese already.

I liked the trip to Yamanashi the most. It provided a very different view of Japan compared to Tokyo. The village, shrine, and individual experiences were all very great to experience.
