Hi Barbara, I'm part of the parents' group Steve mentioned in his post. From what parents have told me and from what seen on school visits, I'd say the Kensington, the American School, and Benjamin Franklin have the highest proportions of non-Catalan, non-Spanish speakers in their students bodies. Many of the other international/British schools--St Peter's, St Paul's, British School of Barcelona--are home to surprisingly few children who speak English at home. It's simple economics. The city is home to 11,000-15,000 English speakers, but few can afford the tuition these schools charge.

After the "What do you do?" the conversation is more fluent, and we just can listen and ask short questions about what he's explaining. That will make him talk and feel comfort with us! Another easy question is "it's your first time here?
