We have read that there are a number of bilingual state schools throughout Spain now, but are finding information on this very tough to come across. We were wondering if anyone has any information on these schools, or any experience with them. Our children will be 9 and 5 for the next school year, and are planning to settle in Benalmedena. The article said there were many throughout the Malaga area, where they were started as a pilot program, but the success of them has seen them spread throughout Spain now. After hours of researching, and limited Spanish (for now), we haven't been able to find much more information on these schools.
We have no problem enrolling the children in 100% Castillian, but thought a bilingual school might make integration a bit easier, while keeping up with the children's English studies.
If anyone has any information regarding a good summer course for the children to prep their Spanish before school, we would be very grateful. We're arriving in May, and would love to have the children in a some sort of course or day camp if this type of thing is available.
Looking forward to landing,
Jenn & John
