Sorry I will give a bit more info
Hubby is good with german (he's dutch) and basic french. I am learning, but have him for the hard stuff. We've done more German than French since my son is obsessed with it
The UK use to be a much nicer place to live. It's changing for the worst, it's almost impossible to rent with a child, and buying has been impossible without jumping hoops. The people have gotten to be rude and not very interested in taking care of their kids. Of course this is not everyone, just our experiences.
Maybe we're looking for that ideal place, as we can live anywhere and don't have family to tie us to a place.
