The Expat Cast

International Schools with Lauren

September 5, 2019

Season 3, Episode 4. "For us, the number 1 priority was that they would thrive academically, that they would thrive socially, and that this experience would build them up, not suppress them and make them feel like introverts just because they're outsiders."

When Lauren moved from the Jersey Shore in New Jersey, USA to Barcelona, Spain with her husband and three small children, she did her research and decided that international school was the right choice for her kids' schooling. She explains to me what that means, what varieties there are within international schools, and what it's like to be a part of one. We also bicker about American football team allegiances and pigs in a blanket.

NEED A CREDIT CARD?

Try N26. They're an online-only bank with free payments in any currency, free ATM withdrawals in Euros, and support staff in English, French, German, Spanish, and Italian.

I just did a bunch of research to choose my first-ever German credit card, and I ended up choosing N26. I set up my account entirely online in minutes, received my card earlier than anticipated, & now I can manage my credit card in a super sleek, English language app. It was incredibly easy & now I have something to use on my various travels!
