The most important reason why I selected the program was for its affordability. As a graduate, I am paying for the program through my own personal funds without the help of any university financial aid or scholarships. Affordability and value of the program were essential in my decision, and KCP has exceeded my expectations.

What I like most about this program is the fact that there are multiple teachers for each class. This enables the students to benefit from each teacher’s style of teaching rather than only being exposed to one. I also like how interactive the classes are.

Sensei asking about our home countries and hometowns (etc) was also helpful because we were already familiar with the topic, which just left describing it using the vocabulary.
