Choosing KCP was largely to do with the ease of application. A lot of other summer courses required a lot of paperwork and recommendations and transcripts that are a big pain to gather. But KCP’s application process was very easy and self-explanatory! Also, the student life photos looked interesting!

I think the best aspect would be how quickly the class moves. Also, activities that allow students to meet native Japanese speakers is a very good idea (i.e. the curry class). I would actually rather have more events like this even sacrificing tour-type excursions because meeting native speakers and befriending them can open up far more opportunities.

Make the most of being in Tokyo

Kaisu from Summer 2018

I’d also encourage everyone to make the most of being in Tokyo – one of the safest and greatest cities in the world. I’ve learned some spoken Japanese every day since I’ve been only using Japanese everywhere and I’ve rarely spent an evening staying at home here.
The time frame was a good match with my work & study schedule and the location of the school is good as well since it’s close enough to my favorite places in Tokyo.

Having a lot of Japanese run through your head is great.

Owen from Fall 2019

Class forces that. Basically cultivating conversational skills through 1 on 1 conversation is quite interesting to me.
