Tour Director Lecture Series June 1 - June 5

We're pleased to continue to provide free lectures from our Tour Directors. We are hearing from teachers around the country that they are enjoying our lectures and sharing them with their students. 
- Loving these and that they are presented by people living in the specific countries.
- These are fabulous! I always recommend them to my students. I can only hope they're watching.
- Really enjoying these webinars. My kids are frustrated with online learning, and this is such a bright spot for them, so I'm very thankful.

- Fantastique! I will definitely use this video with my classes.

Here are some highlights from last week:
Spanish Street Language
It's not what you'd learn from books in school. Learn the functional language of daily life in Spain.
French Cooking Lesson - Macarons
Step inside the kitchen with Frances for an intimate cooking lesson in the French style. Learn how the French do it!
History of Europe in 20 Minutes
Romanesque, Renaissance or Rococo? What does it all mean?
Amazing Switzerland  
We will go on a virtual tour to one of the most beautiful countries in Europe and learn about Swiss chocolate, Swiss cheese, the languages, how to play an alpine horn and how to yodel!
You can see ALL of our lectures on our blog.

The lectures are appropriate for students of all ages and are provided free of charge.

Each lecture features:
  • A 20-30 minute presentation by a Passports Tour Director
  • Questions from the attendees
  • A Kahoot quiz

Scotland: Monsters, Mountains and Tartan - Part 2
With Georgina Newson

Scotland: a country with stunning scenery, a history of battles, myths and legends and, of course, good old Nessie, the Loch Ness monster. This talk will dip into the history of the Clans and the tartan they wear. We'll explore some of the scenery we've seen in TV shows and movies. And, maybe we'll find out... does the monster exist?
