SAF's Student Promise
“I tried not to waste time in my life, being conscious of doing things that I could only do while I was in Germany or meeting people I could only meet in Germany. I cherished each and every day in Leipzig so that I would not have any regrets about my study abroad experience. In the midst of all this, when I saw my teammates writing messages in Japanese on a banner at the last game of the soccer team I belonged to, I was honestly amazed!Tomoki Ohata, Past SAF Student
I was surprised, and at the same time, so happy. I want to thank SAF for the opportunity to have met these friends.”
