ERASMUS KA229 ISLAB 2ème mobilité au Portugal !

Semaine a Maia du 5 octobre au 13 octobre 2019

au Portugal des élèves de TSTL1

The ISLAB scientific project consisted of preparing experiments we had to present in front of students of several origins:

Greek, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and French.

In addition to sharing scientific experiments,  we spoke  the universal language, English, and thus, could improve our level in this language.

Moreover, we had the pleasure of sharing about our different countries and cultures.

Afterwards, in the afternoon, we spent time with the students.

We went to visit Porto together. To get there we took the tram. Once we arrived in Porto, we visited the streets, some cult places and at the end of the afternoon we all stopped in a square where there was a general view of the city. We took several pictures together to keep some memories.

In the evening we all sat down somewhere to talk, have fun and have a last meal together. Afterwards, we split up to go home.

We met in front of a hotel to say goodbye to everybody. It was really moving because ome of the other sudents had become real friends.
