Alumni Feedback

 

The opportunities KCP offered beyond the class experience, like school trips, interaction with people from other countries (in Japanese!), and living in Tokyo, all contribute to a great learning and living environment.-Benjamin Pachter


The connections I made-professionally with experts in my field, personally in my many new friends, and creatively with many brilliant artists and inspiring mentors-have shaped my life.-Tyler Fry


I enjoyed hearing experts explain cultural topics and share their knowledge, in addition to the excursions. The excursions were valuable-but hearing the culture analyzed by experts was also important to me. I grasped points about Japanese culture that I didn't understand before coming to KCP.-Jessica Funtanilla


The most interesting, productive aspect of this program was interacting with the culture and people. I loved walking the streets and trying out the new Japanese I had learned that day-a wonderful experience that I will always remember.-Daniel Huber
