"A knife and a spoon and food"

Translation:Kisu na kijiko na chakula

March 28, 2017



The program seems to have a thing about knives and spoons. Why not knives and forks?

I'm guessing this sentence is from the KI/VI lesson. Both kisu "knife" and kijiko "spoon" (as well as chakula "food") are in that class, but uma "fork" is in the U/N class, which the course presumably hasn't taught yet.


I thought food was chakula and vyakula. I put vyakula at the end of this translation and was told it was chakula.


Using a knife and a spoon like chopsticks ?
