  1. Spain Expat Forum for Expats Living in Spain
    Hello! We are Romanias moving from London to to Valencia in July and so far we have no idea which schools to choose for our children. I know we are probably missing the deadline to enrol.

  2. France Expat Forum for Expats Living in France
    We are planning to move from Canada to Annecy, with 10 yr old twin boys.
