There is no way to explain how frustrating it is to try and discuss something in a language you can hardly speak. Asking questions in English is one thing, trying to ask technical questions in French, for me, is an experience in the absurd.
The floundering idiot syndrome. I'm living that. It has it moments. I find it very useful when I get telemarketers calling but not so nice when I need to get a quote for roof work.
Of course, I could ask the kids to translate.
