We are joined in the studio this week by three local mums - Aga, Lina and Josephine - all of whom have experienced arriving in Hertfordshire as a foreigner.
What were their first impressions? What challenges did they feel they faced when they settled here? How did they overcome these? What advice should we give to new arrivals? What are the best networks to link into? What should parents think about or consider when moving with kids?
We also talk to Chris Flint, writer, editor and teacher of English as a second language.
