of Catalonia, in association with the Barcelona International Schools Association, BISA

MODERATOR: Dr. John Stone, Universitat de Barcelona
LANGUAGE: English and Spanish
DESCRIPTION: Children with family ties abroad and one or more home language are a challenge for parents choosing schools at all levels, from primary to pre-university. Some families value integration into the local community while others stress mobility and, as a result, choose schools that would make it easier to return to a foreign educational system. Some prefer for the child to get their mother tongue at home, teaching basic reading and writing at the weekend, while others want the children to be schooled in their native language. Some feel rooted here and consider a wide range of local post-secondary options, while others feel the need to help their children aspire to a university in their country of origin. What are the options for parents of intercultural children in Barcelona? What is available and what should be taken into account when making these decisions?
