Curiocity: Tips, Tricks, & Theories for International Travel

Tips, Tricks, & Theories for traveling internationally with young adventurers!

 Planning a family trip overseas? Want to get back to the real purpose of travel? Want to learn how to create a stress-free travel experience with your family?

Join the Alliance Française and the International School of Denver as we host Melissa Manassee, Ph.D., in her thoughtful and engaging discussion on this topic. Traveling internationally with young children holds the opportunity to develop useful life skills, cultural understanding, and self-discovery, along with plenty of good stories. But if not careful, family travel can create anxiety and be overly stressful. As Melissa discusses her new approach to travel, she brings her 20+ years of experience in researching, teaching, and traveling to curate some of the best strategies for making the most of your time exploring a new city. Bring your questions and your own stories as we discuss the best way to travel with young adventurers. Melissa’s recently published book, Curiocity Travel Guides: Paris, will be available for purchase during the event!

WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING

Lir M.

I'd like to start this off by thanking you for teaching me so much French. You were a great teacher and you helped me learn so many new things. I'd also like to apologize for missing a lot of lessons, although I'm sure that I would've rather gone to them. Again, you are the best teacher I've ever had, and it's sad to say goodbye to you.


Lir M.

Stephen G.

Alliance Française de Denver created a wonderful virtual environment where I spent my Summer vacation; visiting the winemaking area of Bouzy; celebrating Bastille Day; learning how to cook with flowers; touring historic châteaux and beautiful villages; all in the safety and comfort of my home.

A real treat for any Francophone person; especially having a daily place for French chat to try out and maintain colloquial skills.


Stephen G.

Sue T.

Anne is fantastic! The material is fast paced for this "old dog" to learn new tricks, but we could not go slower. It has been very helpful to prepare me for my trip to France.


Sue T.

Cristina G.

A great place to learn and practice French while getting acquainted with French culture and interesting people. I definitely recommend AFD and their events. Je parle français! Et vous?
