The most productive and interesting aspects of the program.

Goncalves from Fall 2019

Which events or activities did you find the most satisfying and why?

As far as the optional events, the trip to Yamanashi was satisfying as we got to see many different things in just a short weekend.

What were the most productive and interesting aspects of the program for you? The least interesting and productive?

Review sessions with Kato sensei were very helpful for reviewing grammar and understanding things better. Class and homework in general were helpful for reviewing material.

What activities or materials did you find most helpful (e.g., pair work, drill practice, tests, small group sessions, textbooks, games)?

The review sheets we received during Kato Sensei's review classes were helpful in studying. In class, daily tests on Kanji were helpful leading up to the larger Kanji tests. The homework from our "勉強ノート" was helpful because it would get corrected and we could see if our understanding of the material was correct or not prior to the test.

I selected the KCP language program because I wanted to immerse myself in Japanese culture. I wanted to improve my Japanese, and there are glowing reviews of the teachers at KCP. The final verdict was decided when I looked up how much the program costs, and I realized that the short-term summer program is significantly more affordable than many other programs.
