My parents are moving to Botswana for 2 years and I am concerned for my mother who doesnot speak English but only knows Hindi, Indian language.
Are there lot of Indians there so that she can mingle socially? Are there enough Indian grocery store there?

Will she have lot of problem if she doesnot know English?

Please advice

Thanks

I'd encourage her to mingle with the locals more. When in Botswana, monkey see monkey do and she should be fine. Food should never be a concern for obvious reasons.

Batswana are generally respectful and tolerant of other people. There are many people in Botswana speaking other different languages. Setswana is very easy to learn. Your mother will have a lot of your country fokls in Botswana.
