We lived in a French Canadian community when the boys were small. Definitely the minority, it was interesting. My best friend spoke English but her 6 children did not.
Occasionally she babysat for me. Was interesting for the 8 children to play with the language differences. No barrier. Our sons picked up French and got very confused. When they spoke English at home, sometimes used French grammar. We had some really humorous sentences happening in those early days.
BTW, bless your heart, Germaine! Love you. A friend after all these years.
