I am Belgian but have been living in Australia for over 20 years. I am planning on coming back with my family for at least a year next year (2018). I would love your advice re: schools. My children 8.5 and 5.5 are currently attending a Steiner School in Sydney. They don't speak French at all. We would be living in Wallonia, Bierges to be exact. What would you do re:schools?
1) send them to an international school - they are super $$$$ it seems
2) homeschool for the year
3) send them to the local school and hope they pick French up quickly.
I am a French speaker so could help my kids.


and received Bachelor's and Master's with flying colors.

We are abelgian familly living in Limal and have two unschooled kids (7 and 9).
My husband and I speak fluently english and I would like my kids to start learning it.
Si if you choose to unschool your children, we could do some "exchanges" : my kids could come one a week or once a month at your place and speak english and yours could come at my place to learn some french.
