Raising multilingual children abroad comes with a series of important decisions when it comes to education. International families in Spain, France, Italy and Germany have extensive options when educating their children, from local schools (some with a dedicated international department) to the best multilingual private schools.
Living abroad as a parent often means learning about new education systems, exams and coping with language barriers. But there are some incredible businesses, individuals and resources offering support and advice across all aspects of education. Many households need extra support with homework in a second language and face additional challenges such as learning a new language or maintaining written and spoken proficiency in their original mother tongue. Children and young people face a myriad of pressures, particularly during key exams. For English- speaking families living and working abroad, help with exam preparation and revision, private language tuition and small group classes can make a world of difference.
