we used to live in Spain and he went to a Spanish nursery and state school for four years which he enjoyed very much.
unfortunately i had to move him back to the UK as they were not helping him with his English reading i know all a bit confusing lol.
He is now having Spanish lessons at school once a week.
would you recommend i get him a tutor from now until we move next year ?
I personally think your son would benefit from an international school. I know you say you dont like private schools, but international schools are no longer the bastion of the wealthy Brit kids! My son was one of only three British kids in his class, there were all sorts of other nationalities and he learnt Spanish almost fluently. That way your son would be staying with the English curriculum and it would be a continuation of what he's been learning. However you do have to pay and that maybe something you dont wish to do??!!
Once kids hit their teens, they become a strange creature. All hormones, nerves, attitude and emotions. So that can be a problem, even moving schools within the same country!???
