Started learning Swahili

in life •  2 months ago

Preparing for my move to Zanzibar I have decided to get a head start on my Swahili as that is the native language.

I just jumped in with youtube and I'm quite happy with the video I chose. I will start to watch one a day in an effort to be able to communicate with the locals in their language a bit instead of just English.

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.
