I was bored and Duolingo had a new course. Also, I wanted to understand the cooking videos on YouTube. Learn the language to learn the food.

Kwa sababu nina marafiki kutoka Kenya na Uganda, na wao wanaongea kiswahili. Na sauti ya kiswahili ni nzuri sana. Nilijaribu kujifuza kiswahili zamani, na kama Duolingo ameanzilisha somo la kiswahili, mimi nimetaka kujaribu hilo.

I agree, though our university has a dept of African languages and the professor says they can argue about that question for hours.

One school of thought says "Kiswahili" is the actual name of the language, so you should use that; others argue that, in the context of a conversation in English, the language is called "Swahili" (just as the German language is called "Deutsch" in German, "allemand" in French, "tedesco" in Italian, and "tyska" in Swedish).
