Hi Jo,

I am new on here and this is my first response/thread.

As you are a teacher/parent already based in Spain, I would really appreciate you advice. :)

We're looking at moving to the CdS or CB area, we have 2 girls aged 9 and 4.5. We spent some time in Cyprus when the oldest was little and her 'mother tongue' was Greek, but she's lost that now. She has a good ability for languages, however, she suffered from very bad glue ear and was practically deaf for some time. So, she has just caught up with her peers for the English language, and her confidence is only just starting to come through.

We are looking at private International schools just now, above state schools for the above reason, plus we want to keep the girls together in school. Could you recommend any?

Our ultimate lifestlye is to buy/rent a finca that is relatively close to the beach but not too far distance wise to an International school.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. We hope to come over in the summer holidays to view schools and houses.

P x :)

I can't help with CDS , but here on the CB we have quite a lot of International Schools, some better than others

if you're thinking of private, have you considered a bi-lingual school? We have a very good one near us
HI, i was reading your comments on this page and im looking for adice, we are thinking on moving to spain with an 8 and a 6 year old, how do you think they will pick up spanish, ive started them in a private lesson 1 hour a week..... your help would be appreciated, thanks von x

every little helps:)

yes, at their ages they should pick up Spanish with few problems - do have Spanish tv & magazines at home, though, to reinforce it

my dds were 8 & 5 when they started at Spanish & I now live with 2 Spanish teenagers :D
