I'm also worried what kind of school my 4-year old should attend? What kind of kids he will be playing with? Is he gonna forget English? We are from Toronto, Canada. I will be working in Hong Kong and my partner will start a small business with her brothers. Thanks a trillion here! I'm really worried for my son. Only hope this gonna be a good move...Jack
Hi Jack,

San Fernando is a pretty good place. Like anywhere there are good and bad areas.
Living/housing conditions determine the dengue danger. Screens on windows and doors and use of air-conditioning makes a world of difference.

Unless you have known your partner for one heck of a long time, I would not suggest leaving a child with her. Many possible dangers to put it quite mildly--- red flags up the ying-yang!
If you are not here all or most of the time your child will forget most "regular" English without any doubt.

Suggest you read as much as possible on this site and others on safety or the lack of it and make your decision accordingly.

Wish I could be more positive but I assume you are looking for the truth here.
