Ever since my first day (4 days ago), a group of us have been taking Swahili lessons in the morning for an hour. Looks like we are planning on continuing this for the foreseeable future. Definitely a way to wake up and rack the brain in the morning. I can’t remember the last time I had homework either.
A couple phrases for you:
Karibu (care – ree – boo) – Welcome
Asante (ah – san – te) – Thank You
Kwa heri (kwah – hairy) – Good Bye
