I had no idea (and I'm pleasantly surprised to find out) that Swahili had so many Arabic-based words! That certainly makes this a little easier.
I think it is about 30%. Just wait till you learn the numbers.
Which is exactly what makes it harder for me ;)
As far as we learned at university 80% of loanwords in Swahili are based on Arabic. (now more and more English too, but so far...)
It told me "tafadhali" was wrong, then told me the correct answer is "tafadhali"
I am amazed!!!
How can Swahili have one single word for "I am sorry for you? (Pole)
Please can also be Samahani!
It can also be Pole
