I feel the same way about "Knabino" from esperanto and "schildpadden" from dutch xD

Schildpadden is just a nice word, though I rarely use it. You really have to learn that if you want to learn Dutch?

Eh, in the duolingo course animals is one of the first few courses they teach. I don't know, I guess it's not suuuuper important I know what a turtle is in dutch, but I feel like animals are easy enough :)

Is this sentence typical of Swahili syntax?

Yes, though still a very simple sentence. In many cases you find a lot more prefixes and suffixes to words. It can be a real puzzle to locate the core words. That makes it a nice language to learn.
