I am a 14 year old girl who likes to travel around the world and hopefully live around the world. I want to start living around the world with my family by starting in Cape Town, since it is a very beautiful city and a very live able place. We plan on moving in a year or two. I have some questions about moving though:

-What is life like in Cape Town?
-Where do teenagers hang out?
-Where can I go to school?
-Where can I learn Afrikaans/Xhosa, etc.?
-How can I get used to culture shock?
-What neighborhood should my family and I live in?
-How long does the moving process take?
-Should we visit Cape Town before moving?

Yeah - you're a bit young!! But here are a few answers for you :

-What is life like in Cape Town?

That one is too broad - you might have to be more specific.

-Where do teenagers hang out?

There are malls - but it's basically malls and social events and people's houses.

-Where can I go to school?

There are plenty of schools all over


-Where can I learn Afrikaans/Xhosa, etc.?

There are plenty of tutors / companies you can use.


-How can I get used to culture shock?

I moved here when I was 13. Culture shock isn't something that you can just "plan" to get used to. It takes time. Keep an open mind - it helps.


-What neighborhood should my family and I live in?

Depends on how much money you have.


-How long does the moving process take?

Depends on how you move ( What visas) etc. But shipping stuff takes 6-8 weeks.

-Should we visit Cape Town before moving?

Absolutely!

Now that being said ...... you might want to ask your parents to register and ask these questions :)
