Re: Sending kids to local schools and speaking the local language

The only one in our family that has any French experience is my 11 year old daughter. I wanted to know if any parents with no French/German language background have sent their kids to local school and how the experience has been.
Both my husband and myself are originally from Pakistan, but have been raised in USA from a very young age. English is our parents second language. Our parents were not always able to help with school work, but at least they were able to communicate with our teachers. That will not be the case with my children, since both my husband and I do not speak any French.
I know kids are quick learners, but I feel so much more at ease when I hear from someone who has been through a similar experience as I will be going through shortly.
