    First notebook entry: Introducing myself

    Ninajifunza Nimejifunza Kiswahili chuoni pakuu tangu kwa miezi minne sasa. Ninaishi dhabi Kuwait nina weta ninaweza kusema vitu vyini mambo mengi pia. Msamiati si rahisi lakini apendeza unapendeza sana.

     

    Ninajifunza - I am learning

    Nimejifunza - I have learnt

    Nimekuwa nikijifunza - I have been learning

    Nimejifunza Kiswahili chuoni/katika chuo kikuu kwa miezi minne sasa - This implies up to now/this moment.

    You have already known the word "msamiati",

    which means "difficult word" ! That word in itself

    is "msamiati" !! I am trying to amend

    though I cannot understand some part.

     

     

    Ninajifunza Kiswahili chuoni pakuu tangu miezi minne.

    -> katika chuo kikuu

     

    Without "-kuu", you can say,

    "Ninajifunza Kiswahili chuoni."

     

    The use of "tangu" is like

    "tangu mwezi wa tisa"

    "tangu zamani"

     

     

    Nina dhabi Kuwait

    Your name ? Or the word which I don't know yet :)

    If you would like to say "I came from Kuwait",

    "Nimetoka kuwait".

     

     

    nina weta kusema vitu vyini pia.

    If you would like to say "I can say many words, too.",

    "Ninaweza kusema maneno mengi pia."

     

     

    Msamiati si rahisi lakini apendeza sana.

    ->unapendeza

     

    I amended grammatically above.

    I guessed you would like to say

    "'A difficult word' is not easy but interesting."

    I think some of native people cannot understand it,

    because

    Msamiati = difficult word = usumbufu(disturbance)

    so, not "kupendeza"

    So, it's better to look for the other expression.

    For example,

    Msamiati si rahisi lakini, ninapenda kukumbuka.
