Hi everyone, next month we will move from Ireland to Portugal. I thought I had everything ready but I've hit a couple of issues with school enrolment that I hadn't expected. I know people who have been resident in Portugal for years so they gave me their experience of this. It seems to have changed since then. Has anyone enroled their children at the local Portuguese schools? The advice I was given was to enrol them to do the last school year again (that they did in their home country) in order for them to learn Portuguese, then that they would move up to their class age when their Portuguese has reached a level where they can manage this. Would anyone agree? My son has just finished primary school in Ireland (is now 13) and my daughter is 8. I'd love hear from anyone who has done this. I think it would be too much for them to simply start the next school year, when they are only starting to learn the language. Many thanks for any help and shared experience.
