Castellano in Valencia

My family moved to Valencia a few weeks ago. My wife and I have acquired a fair bit of Spanish through DuoLingo and our kids studied after school for a few hours each week leading up to this move. Now we're in the thick of it and will need to get all of us up to speed quickly.
If you have been to Spain then you know the Spanish people have no patience for sub standard Spanish so we want to improve quickly. Unfortunately as a family of 5 we won't have a lot of mo ey to spend on centre-based instruction. The upside is that we are native native English speakers, our kids were all in French Immersion before moving here, and my wife and I are both CELTA certified English instructors.
If you are a native Spanish speaker looking for help in English for you or your kids and are open to bartering or trading language skills, let's talk. We are in Benicalap, 46025 and our kids all attend Colegio de San Juan Bosco in Tendetes.
Talk soon!

Hi Steve,

How's it going here in Valencia with your family, are you progressing with your Spanish? Hope your family is adapting well to your new life here!

My name is Gerardo, I'm a native Spanish living in Valencia.
Back in 2013 I spent about 14 months with my family (wife and 1 kid - now 2 kids) in Bristol, UK. Since we moved back to Valencia, I've been wanting to meet people (families, ideally) to practice English and to keep my older son (who managed to learn some English) in touch with an English-spoken environment. But that didn't prove to be easy to achieve on the long run.

So, if you're still looking for somebody to learn/practice Spanish, in exchange for some English, I'd be more than glad to meet you!

We live in Juan Llorens area (46008), not too far away from Benicalap actually.

Un saludo,
