If you only speak English and aren't willing to learn another language that only leaves Anglophone countries (all of which have base immigration requirements you'd have to meet to qualify). Unless you're a highly educated STEM pro your best bet is Canada because under the TN agreement the threshold for qualification is less stringent.
Unless you are independently wealthy, marry a citizen of another country, or have an advanced degree in a STEM field + years of experience (and speak the local language at least very frequently) then it is not realistic for you to expect to move to another country long-term.
If you have a Bachelor's degree then consider teaching English in Asia. It is usually a one-year-at-a-time assignment If you have a Bachelor's degree you can also volunteer with the Peace Corps, which is a two-year assignment. You also get a federal hiring preference when you complete the two years with the Peace Corps.
You can take a vacation anywhere you can afford to go. Or if you meet qualifications for either temporary employment visa or immigration to some country, see if you get accepted.
So what are your qualifications? What degrees do you hold in which field from which universities where? What post-master's, preferably doctoral, degree experience do you have doing what, exactly, how well & how long for whom where? Is this a STEM occupation which is in short supply somewhere & eligible for either employment visa or immigration? Can you compete against all the others from around the world trying to get a job abroad or immigration somewhere? Only qualified employers can apply for any employment visa for their qualified foreign employee - you cannot apply.
I think your lack of languages is the least of your problem
Your choice is going to limited in the extreme (and that's being polite), unless you have high level experience in a STEM subject AND permission from the baby daddy to take the child out of the USA.
Otherwise, the only way you are leaving the USA is for a 2 week holiday somewhere !

Language is not the issue. There are several English-speaking countries.
You do not say anything about your means and your earning potential. As a single mother you would probably have to demonstrate that you could support both yourself and your children in order to be accepted as an immigrant. This might be either through existing capital, earning potential or support from the father which will continue to be paid to you in the new country. You would probably need to produce supporting evidence (qualifications and a job offer in the new country, bank balance, an undertaking to pay child maintenance enforceable in the new country's courts, etc).
Canada or Australia are probably the countries with fewest restriction on immigration by US nationals.
You could go to one of the many, many places on Earth where English is a primary or secondary language or,,,, and I'm just spitballing here,,,, you could,,, like,,, I don't know,,,, learn to speak another language maybe,,,
