I don’t speak French and my child neither, how she/he will adapt?
From the first day of school, your child will be surrounded by a French environment. I do not expect of her/him to speak French or to understand French. Give it time and little by little your child will understand and speak French naturally. You can support your child by reading stories in French, talking in French with her/him. If you don’t have any knowledge of French you can find some resources here.
