Hi everyone.

I hope y’all having a great time in Tanzania. Well today we are going to do something a little bit productive. More of Swahili classes for our dear expats. This will enable expats who are striving to improve their Swahili language skills. I am sure it has reached a point you wish to communication with local people so bad in Swahili and not sure where to start.

Special thanks to APE network ( African Proper Education ) for publishing the books called ‘’NAHAU ZA KWETU’’ and ‘’METHALI ZA KWETU’’.

Methali = Proverbs

Nahau = Idioms

You can download ‘SWAHILI SAYING’ app in your mobile phone through googleplay.

I will posting at least ten proverbs and idioms per week five each.

Let’s do this

1.‘’Acha kwenye mataa’’

Swahili: Telekeza au acha mtu nyuma bila yeye kutarajia.

English: Leave somebody behind or hanging without them expecting it

2.‘’Achia ngazi’’

Swahili: Staafu, amua kuacha cheo au mamlaka.

English: Stepping down from a position/power/top rank

3.‘’Achiwa mikoba’’

Swahili: Rithishwa madaraka au majukumu

English: Left to do what someone was doing, more of an inheritance of a job or obligations or manners etc.

4.‘‘Ambulia patupu’’

Swahili: shindwa kupata chochote

English: when you get nothing out of something you have asked for.

5.‘’Ana kwa ana’’

Swahili: Kutana na mtu uso kwa uso

English: A face to face interaction

So, i will be posting more swahili proverbs and idioms on the forum section everyweek. Feel free to wind back at Bongohub for more so called classes Click Here

    I don't know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your blog.

    It appears like some of the written text on your content are running off the
    screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know
    if this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my internet browser because I've had this happen previously.
    Thank you
