reposting what I posted on ypour Welcom Inn thread..

At the ages they are, your eldest would almost certainly need an international school, the youngest might be OK in a Spanish school. The jobs would be your major problem, unemployment in Spain is around 30-35%, and with that situation you would be fighting the locals for any job. You would have to be fluent in Spanish to get any sort of management position as, even if the company is British, they would still have to deal with Spanish people on a daily basis. You would also have to factor in Healthcare costs, without a contracted job you would need privatr cover, and even the Spanish healthcare service isn't free. School costs for teaching in a Spanish school are free, but everything else has to be paid for, books etc.

I know that's not really what you want to hear, but it's the truth.
Spain is a great place to live if you have money or are retired and need not to work, for others it's hard I'm afread. It is said that it's very easy to be a millionaire in Spain, all you need is two million to start with.

Do you all speak fluent Spanish?

If not, what were your plans regarding education and jobs?
