Facilitated naturalization

Hi everybody.
I am new to this forum and this is my first question. I assume millions of other people have asked these questions, but I hope you don't mind me asking again.

I am married for 12 years to my Swiss husband and lived together all those years. We never lived in Switzerland except the time we were visiting the relatives or registering our marriage in Switzerland. We have two lovely kids and both of them have Swiss passport. We are currently living in Australia and we all have New Zealand citizenship. We have been thinking of going to live in Switzerland. I understand it would be better for me to have a Swiss citizenship. It seems it will be through Facilitated Naturalization. I don't speak German, French, Italian or Romansh. The Swiss embassy has told us they will interview me if they are satisfied with the paper work. They prefer to interview in one of the official languages of Switzerland however they would do it in English if I am unable to do it in any other languages. I am little bit nervous about the interview. Has anybody here have some experiences on that? They mentioned about "tie to Switzerland". We have friends and immediate family members. We have a bank account and in the last 12 years, I have visited 4 times. Are these enough? If I don't speak one of the official languages, would this be hold against me? Thanks
