The lovely ladies in my office have been teaching me a Swahili ‘word of the day’. Now I’ve learnt most of the list, the problems come when somebody, anybody says anything to me. For some reason I suddenly feel a lot of pressure and give random replies.
Real life example number one: Friendly stranger – “Jambo”
Emma – “Moto maji ahsanta sana”
The teaching from the ladies in my office is top notch; I can only assume the problem is the student.
