Mensaje para los estudiantes actuales y futuros

KICL is only a tool, and only one part of your Japanese studies. It's a place where you'll make lifelong friends, make job and personal connections. It's a launch pad for the rest of your life either working in Japan, or doing something interesting in your home country or somewhere else around the world. Coming to Japan turns you into a global citizen.

Your studies are only what you put into them. If you are willing to take all of the extra classes, make friends outside of school, attend events, and join clubs, you will undoubtedly be able to communicate fluently in Japanese. If you think coming to Japan is enough, it will take you a lot longer to be proficient.

Getting here is the first step. What you do here will determine the rest of your life.
