Preparing for my move to Zanzibar I have decided to get a head start on my Swahili as that is the native language.
So let me show off a bit: Habari, mimi ni Pieter. Ninafuraha kukutana na wewe.
That is an informal way of saying: Hello, I'm Pieter, nice to meet you.
To do it formally, it would be: Shikamoo, jina langu ni Pieter Bekker. Ninafurha kukutana na wewe.
That translates to: Hello, My name is Pieter Bekker, Nice to meet you.
Want to hear how it sounds or try it for yourself? Check out the video below.
Anyone speak Sawhili around here? Would be great to have a practice buddy!!!
