So I recommend you Andalucia. Have you ever been there? If you go someday, you should rent out an apartment in Sevilla, Granada or Malaga . You’ll have an incredible experience as I had, for sure ^^

Our kids never went to school while we were in Spain so we really don’t know how it works however I can point you to two blogs that would know something about it.

Cat from Sunshine and Siestas moved there from the US a few years back and teaches English in Seville. She would definitely know a thing or two about English schools.

You can also check out our friends, the Wagoners who have moved to Spain and decided to put their kids into regular Spanish school. They talk a fair bit about the education system on their site Wagoners Abroad and might know a thing about English in the schools as well.

Hope that helps. Good luck!

Do most students go to language school AFTER regular daily school? I found this to be true in my stay in S.Korea, as well. Or do students learn English in private and public daily schools? Does anyone have any experience with these private schools having worked there or sent children there for instruction? I am interested in working at a private school in Torreviejo. Any insight you can give into work and life in Spain as an expat would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Mellie-middle aged single teacher form NC, USA. looking to live/work abroad!

The contact lens solution thing is crazy! Was just Spain last month, and I could totally see myself living there. Guess there are pros and cons everywhere.

I live in Poland and some of your observations would be adecuate also for my country, for example such as fridges hidden in cupboards or long life milk. Other things you mentioned in your article also attract our attention every time we are in Spain. We love Spanish way of life and adapt to it with pleasure while on holidays.

That coffee pot sounds like the old perk one my mom had. Drip coffee makers didn’t exist until the 1970s. Everyone made coffee the old fashioned way. Washers in the kitchen and small fridges are really common in Europe. I love shopping daily at specialty markets.

Didn’t perform either task very well, but it did save space.

Love the way the gelato all but leaps off the page, btw. Nice post.

Ultimately the differences make me appreciate the benefits of the new place while fondly remembering the comforts of home.

Thanks for capturing the essence of the feeling 🙂
