Founded in 1983, KCP Internationa Language Institute is located in Shinjuku, the business, entertainment, and shopping center of Tokyo. The KCP campus is a short walk from Shinjuku-gyoenmae Station on the Marunouchi subway line.
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 institute has been featured in many publications throughout Asia and is recognized as a leader in Japanese language education.
Students take courses in Intensive Japanese Language: beginning through advanced, and Japanese culture and civilization. Students interested in summer study abroad in Tokyo should see the list of summer program options.
For room and board, students have two options: homestay (including breakfast and dinner) or dormitory (meals and utilities not included). A 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale is required, as are two letters of recommendation, freshman through senior standing, and a minimum age of 18.
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.
