Academics & Program

KCP International Japanese Language School

The Intensive Japanese Language Course is the main focus of the KCP program. It concentrates on all four communication skills "reading, writing, speaking, and listening" to help students achieve a balance between general knowledge of the Japanese language and practical ability. Studying at KCP not only provides students an opportunity to learn the Japanese traditions and cultures as the package program incorporates a range of excursions in and around Tokyo.

Furthermore, studying with a diverse KCP student body comprised of individuals from around the world also contribute to the quality and comprehensive nature of the KCP programs. Students have two options: homestay, including breakfast and dinner (not available for short term program); dormitory, meals and utilities not included.

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

Jessica Funtanilla

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
