From there, a student has access to such Tokyo landmarks and attractions as the Japanese government buildings, Shinjuku and Yoyogi Parks, Meiji Shrine, Tokyo Tower, and popular student destinations including Shibuya and Harajuku. The school has been featured in many publications throughout Asia and is recognized as a leader in Japanese language education.

KCP International Japanese Language School provides an opportunity for serious students to achieve remarkable proficiency in Japanese.

Special emphasis is placed on a balanced language education program that stresses the 4 most important communication skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The language course is offered at six levels.

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.

Student Life & Housing

Student Life 

The Intensive Japanese Language Course is the main focus of this program. The KCP program focuses 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.

Housing 

Students have their choice of staying in a private dormitory room, or with a Japanese family (homestay). The homestay option offers profound insight into the typical Japanese family and the ability to practice your Japanese skills. The dorm is ideal for students who desire greater freedome and independence. With both dorm and homestay options students receive a local transportation pass between their housing and school. 

Incidentals

The homestay cost includes breakfasts and dinners. We do our best to secure homestay arrangements for all students who want them, but this is not always possible. There are a limited number of homestay hosts available, and we can make no guarantees. For best results, apply early.

KCP can offer homestay only during your first term of study. After that, you will most likely be placed in a dormitory for the rest of your time at KCP. Dormitory setting offers a fun chance to meet other young people. A cafeteria is usually available, as are vending machines, public phones, and a coin laundry. Meals are not included in the program cost; utilities and bed linens are included.

Dormitory life offers several advantages including private rooms, other foreign students (so, more access to your classmates and other young people), freedom to come and go as you please (within curfews), and ore control over your meals, if you have special meal requests or eating habits.

Meals and Meal Plan 

The arrangement for food varies at different dorms. You will have one of these three scenarios: 

Whether using a meal plan or buying your own food, we recommend you budget $1,000 for summer short term

Internet Service

Most dorms have computers in the lounge for common use. Students can use the phone lines there to get internet access, once they have arranged for a connection service (usually a setup fee plus a monthly fee). Some dorms have a phone in each room. You can use this line for internet access once you have arranged with an internet service provider.

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.
