homeschooling in Madrid, Spain
First of all, just to clarify a doubt that I saw in many messages : in Spain and in present days, homeschooling is NOT illegal. It's not recognized ; we call it "un vacio legal".
If I recall correctly, among EU countries it's illegal only in Germany for German families.
New in this forum, we started the homeschool adventure last christmas (january 2010) for our two kids now 5 and 7 yrs old.
We live in Madrid and are looking for english speaking homeschoolers families in Madrid or surroundings. My wife is Spanish and I'm French.
Our 7 yrs-old follows the american curriculum (in spanish language) with one of the 2 main existing academic helps for homeschoolers in Spain.
For those interested, next beginning of december, homeschoolers families linked to Epysteme will meet for a few days (national holidays) ; but it is opened to other families...

We already went to the two previous ones (dec 2009 and Easter 2010). We were between 100 or 120 people each time.
Please don't hesitate to contact us in order to organize together things or activities in Madrid or surroundings. We could start something like a homeschoolers playgroup...
See you and enjoy life,
