Lauren Collins discovered this firsthand when, in her early thirties, she moved to London and fell for a Frenchman named Olivier—a surprising turn of events for someone who didn’t have a passport until she was in college. But what does it mean to love someone in a second language? Collins wonders, as her relationship with Olivier continues to grow entirely in English.

When the couple, newly married, relocates to Francophone Geneva, Collins—fearful of one day becoming \"a Borat of a mother\" who doesn’t understand her own kids—decides to answer her questions for herself by learning French.
