A student studying abroad with KCP International Japanese Language School: Tokyo - Intensive Japanese Language Immersion
I not only learned more about Japanese language and culture, but I learned so much about myself and others. It was a personal growth experience in many ways. It was absolutely worthwhile. - Missouri State University View Entire Review
September 01, 2019 Amazing
How to study Japanese as well as how to adjust to Japanese lifestyle. It was very worthwhile. - DePaul University View Entire Review
I feel like I learned more refined Japanese at KCP than 3 years at American school. KCP teaches you grammar that is useful in daily conversation and since it's located in Japan, you can use what you learn in class literally right after is school is over. Since the main classes is only in Japanese, it forces the mind to start thi... - Central Washington University View Entire Review

Was worthwhile and helped me to decide that I really do want to live in Japan and become a successful interpreter. It taught me life lessons that not even your generic college life can teach in my home country. - Valencia College View Entire Review
While I had traveled abroad before, I had never lived in one foreign place for that long (eight weeks) before. By being there for an extended amount of time, I think I was able to experience the culture in a more authentic way than if I was just visiting for a week. - Walla Walla University View Entire Review
I gained a lot of independence, which was a big reason for my desire to study abroad. I also gained a good foundation of the Japanese language to continue studying at home and some amazing memories and experiences that I'll never forget. It was definitely worthwhile! - Park University View Entire Review

I learned to be independent in a foreign country. It's a wonderful experience. - Bergen Community College View Entire Review
August 28, 2016 A Unique Experience!
Other than learning the language, I was exposed to Japanese's beautiful culture and people. I learned more about myself as an individual. Language is only a barrier if you make it. 100% worthwhile! - California State University - Long Beach View Entire Review
To be a well rounded person, and my world certainly got bigger due to traveling. Higher self esteem. - Kutztown University of Pennsylvania View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing School
I gained a new view on asian culture and Japanese people. I also learned how to maintain a decent conversation with someone I just met in Japanese. It was a very worthwhile program. - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the culture living with a host family and activities with native Japanese students. It was absolutely worth every second. - Brookdale Community College View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile, though I would greatly recommend that you work hard and save money ahead of time. That's what I did, and it worked out. The experience was absolutely incredible, and you gain a lot of cultural perspective. - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
Of course it was worthwhile. I gained good basic language skills + got to live in Tokyo which is one of my favorite cities in the world. - University of Tampere View Entire Review
February 15, 2019 I Love This Place!
The ability to be independent, immerse myself successfully in another culture, learn a new language as well as customs and values of another culture, and I learned more about myself as a person as far as personal growth/development. - University of Tampa View Entire Review

Just how many people are passionate and eager to the learn the language. Cultural exchange with classmates and learning more about Korea / China whilst having daily conversations in Japanese really increased my knowledge of Asia as a whole. - Deakin University View Entire Review
I got to an intermediate level of Japanese and a good understanding of Japanese vocabulary that forms a solid framework for your own self-study should you continue. Being able to live in another country was also enlightening. It was worthwhile. View Entire Review
In just one semester, even for lessons I had previously learned in the United States, I learned so many different contextual examples that I feel much better acquainted with the lessons. There were many more exceptions that I learned about than I did in the United States, and I was able to learn more in a shorter amount of time.... - Missouri State University View Entire Review
January 31, 2018 My Time In Japan
Beyond the language component, I learned a great deal about myself. Not only in being able to plan out this grand trip, but also about my strengths and weaknesses. Overall, I feel that I am more independent as a result of studying abroad. - University of Idaho View Entire Review
While studying abroad I created many friends and forged many relationships that I will continue to keep for the rest of my life. During my time abroad I learned to be more open minded to different cultures. Having been exposed to not only the Japanese culture, I have become more acquainted with other cultures, like Chinese and K... - Brookdale Community College View Entire Review
I not only learned a lot about the Japanese language, but a lot about other people and cultures, and about myself. - Belmont University View Entire Review
I definitely learned a lot more about Japanese culture and everyday interactions. It was also amazing to see how much more comfortable I'd become using Japanese everyday. - California State University - Fullerton View Entire Review
KCP was a great experience abroad. It not only teaches you Japanese but also immerses you in the culture. I've gained a much better understand of Japan not only through my classes but from my own experiences exploring on my own. - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile, my conversation skills are far better than before, and my international/cultural knowledge has soared! - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
