Review

My time at KCP International Language School is something I still think about, even months after the program has ended. While there, I was able to accomplish so much that I had never expected to. Not only did I improve my Japanese language proficiency, but I was given the opportunity to explore a new country and make international friendships. Tokyo is such an amazing, accessible city that it's hard not to miss it once you leave. The school itself is in a great location, right in the heart of Shinjuku, and has plenty of great restaurants and cafes nearby. I spent a lot of my time with friends in the school cafeteria, studying for upcoming tests or helping each other with the homework. The school is also a great place to practice conversational Japanese with the other students.

KCP offers a lot of amazing experiences outside of the classroom, too. If you opt in, you'll be escorted through the different parts of Tokyo almost every weekend, giving you plenty of opportunities to see famous landmarks and historic locations. Another perk of being in the US program is the chance to spend a weekend in the Mt. Fuji area. The time I spent in the ryokan there is something I still think of fondly.

If you're able to go abroad and have real interest in studying language and culture, I highly recommend choosing KCP International. If your experience is anything like mine, you'll gain newfound confidence in speaking Japanese and many long-lasting friendships.
