thanks for your help
About the Schools in Joao Pessoa:
I live in Joao Pessoa and I can tell you everything you want to know about this city. There is no English school here! Your children can study in a normal school and they will learn to speak Portuguese very fast. You may ask me 'How is a normal school in Joao Pessoa?'. And I will answer to you. In a normal school your children will study all the subjects in Portuguese. They will study Physics, History, Geography, Chemistry, Biology, Math, etc in our mother language (Port). And they will have a subject called English, French and Spanish to learn foreign languages. There are many English Course here, where your children go twice in a week to study English, these courses are extra school.
Thank you for your comments, I think the boys will have to speak Port very fast!! Which are some safe suburbs that are walking distance to the beach?

There are some safe suburbs/quarter next to the sea in Joao Pessoa. There are few suburbs, for example: Intermares, Bessa, Manaira, Tambau and Cabo Branco. If you decide to live in one of these areas/neighbourhood, you can go to the beach just walking. I live in a big and amazing apartament in Manaira. I can go to beach just walking :)
Please, get my mail
When are you planning to move to Joao Pessoa?
Which country do you live now?
I don't know how old this post is, but we do have bilingual schools now. Mapple Bear is the newest one. And it's located at Bessa
