The language thing is not an uncommon, or unsolvable issue. I have cousins in this exact situation. She's American and he's Israeli, and while he speaks perfect english, she only knows the minimal hebrew she learned in hebrew school as a child. They wanted their children to be bilingual so at home he speaks to them in hebrew and she in english. Their children all speak fluent hebrew, despite having lived their entire lives in the US.

Yep, in my family we have an issue like this too--my sister and her husband speak English and Japanese at home, and though my sister is fluent, Japanese is her second language. They're doing their best to speak both with their son at home, but they're finding that his Japanese is far behind his English because they don't speak it at preschool. Recently they enrolled him in a Japanese preschool to help. I also have a coworker who is Indian and at home they speak Telugu and English but her toddler isn't picking up the non-English language like she wants; even when she talks to her in Telugu the child often responds in English. I guess it varies a lot but definitely many bilingual+ households have this issue with their kids!
