There is no difference between a and the in swahili, but it keeps marking it wrong. Can this not be fixed?
Actually there is no word for 'a' or 'the' in Swahili. You're just going to have to figure out the context of the sentence to use the correct article.
Except in the context of this sentence to say A child has cholera implies a non specific condition and fortunately not every child gets cholera. 'The child has cholera' implies that one specific child has cholera. Its a sentence that is far more likely than 'A child has cholera' but both are technically correct
