KCP International Japanese Language School's Mission Statement

KCP provides the serious student with a unique opportunity to achieve proficiency in the Japanese language through total immersion. With a student-teacher ratio of 11 to 1, KCP serves approximately 800 students per year. While most students are from other parts of Asia and all instruction is in Japanese, English-speaking staff provide language support, including special tutorials, as the need arises for our many U.S. students. KCP is a convergence of students, aspiring teachers, interns, and professors. KCP teachers are carefully evaluated for teaching effectiveness and methodology, through a series of interviews and active observations. Tokyo-area university professors teach the new, innovative KCP Japanese-language teacher preparation program-the only one of its kind at a Japanese language institute. In addition, Japanese teachers-in-training from nearby universities serve supervised internships at KCP, to supplement your instruction and provide more interaction.
