Lesson 3 of Swahili

in life •  3 months ago 

Today I am doing my third lesson. I skipped yesterday as I was working form 2am until 8pm so I was knackered so let's get to it!!!


Today's lesson is about greetings.

Here she tells us about different ways to greet new people and friends in both a formal and informal setting.

The most commonly used informal greeting is:

Habari - Hi/Hello (Informal)

Shikamoo - Hello (Formal)

When it becomes night time you'd say:

Habari ya joini - Goodnight, However this is only a hello.

When leaving you'd say:

Kwaheri - Goodbye

You could also say Tuonane tena, which means see you soon. This could be used formally and informally.

She also says that greetings are generally done with a handshake however if you know the person it is common to hug.

I have been enjoying these lessons but I feel the order of them are a bit weird so I will also be looking into some alternative video's or maybe I'm just being impatient?
