Re: Enrolling english speaking children in Italian schools

Hi i am looking to moving to Marche in Italy with a 10 year old, i would love some information on living in Italy and the school life for expats.
My partner is from north ItalyBologna and we are use to going to Bologna but i have never lived in Italy and i wondered how hard it will be for my son and myself.
We speak some italian but it is limited. I am worried that the school transition may be too much for my son, with it not being his native language.
Any advice would be relly apreciated.
Kind regards.
Margie

Hi all,
It's been a few years since you all posted regarding enrolling English children in an Italian school. I wondered if you all still feel the same and how it is for you this many years on?
We are making plans to make the move to somewhere in Abruzzo this time next year, we have two trips planned to travel the region and find where we like.
We have an 11 year old son who is due to start secondary tomorrow and in hindsight we wish we had made this decision sooner but alas that was not possible.
I have many fears regarding school for him and would appreciate as much information as possible.
He is due to start Italian tuition here in the uk next week, we've downloaded podcasts, films purchased books and every object in our home is covered with Italian terms, we don't live in a post it note but it sure feels like it!
I have looked at international schools but the fees are too high for us and trying to find information on local schools isn't easy.
Any information would be greatly received.
Thanking you in advance

Hi Margie,
How are you getting on with finding out about schools? I haven't had any replies to my post so I wondered what information you have, if any?
I'm finding it quite overwhelming!
Thanks in advance
