SiPN Built-in Field Trips

Every semester we take our students to different parts of the country on “SiPN sponsored filed trips”. Frequently we fly our student’s to one of the Portuguese archipelagos in the Atlantic. Take a look at some of the highlights of one of SiPN´s trips to Madeira Islands. Azores archipelago is usually one of our destination in the Fall.

These weekend long trips promote a better understanding of the country, its challenges, landscapes, gastronomy specialties… It is also a great way to see and reflect first-hand on topics covered in the classroom.

Learning through culture

“I decided to come to Lisbon because I wanted to challenge myself by seeking a language barrier after the impactful experience I had while traveling in India a little over a year ago. With that, I was inspired by the opportunities for personal growth as I would work to learn Portuguese, and from the moment my plane touched down in Lisbon, I knew I would never be the same.”
