Ninaona ninaona. Ni saa sita za mchana hapa, lakini nisipoweza kulala, ninatazama televisheni: Suits au Game of Thrones. Unaangalia ama? PS: 'nisipoweza' - nilitumia nzuri?

Sitazami Game of Thrones. Ninajua kwamba nikianza kuitazama, sitaweza kuacha. Nilimaliza kutazama Orange is the New Black karibuni, na sasa hivi sitazami televisheni au Netflix na kadhalika - ninafanya muziki, kusoma au kuandika, au kutazama video kwenye YouTube ...

Na ndiyo - ninadhani kwamba ulitumia "nisipoweza" vizuri. :-)

Asante sana! Hapana, sikuichora. Niliiona kwenye Internet nikaiiba. ;-) Inaonekana kama mimi kidogo, lakini labda uso wangu si mzuri sana kama picha haha.

Ndiyo. Mimi ni msaidizi wa mawasiliano. Bosi wangu ni kiziwi na mimi hutafsiri kidogo na vilevile huandika makala kwa ajili ya tovuti.

Sina mke, sina mume, sina watoto, sina mpenzi ... niko peke yangu, lakini nina rafiki wengi wazuri. :-) Na wewe je?

Sijambo, Joana! Ninaitwa Ben. Nina miaka thelathini na mitatu. Ninatoka Australia, lakini sasa nimeishi Ujerumani kwa miaka minne. Ni usiku hapa, lakini siwezi kulala. Unafanya nini usipoweza kulala?

Unaposema idadi zaidi ya tano, usiseme "mi-" kabla ya tatu. Hata hivyo tatu chini ya tano, thelathini na tatu zaidi ya tano. Kwa hiyo, Sema "thelathini na tatu." Sawa? Tunasaidiana!!

eeeeh, labda hivi kewli. Lakini, najua watu ambao wanasema "nina miaka ishirini na nne" "mayai kumi na mbili." Maybe, because proper Swahili is rarely spoken by Swahili speakers, this is true, but not commonly practiced.

Watu waliowengi wanaozungumza Kiswahili si wazungumzaji asilia.

Ni kweli kabisa kwamba watu wengi hawaongei kiswahili hasa. Mimi ni mmoja wao, mimi ni mtanzania lakini Swahili ni bovu. Ni slang na a mix of two other languages (kutchi and English). Sadly, this is common in a lot of the younger generation ndio maana niko hapa kujifunza kiswahili hasa halafu nitamfundisha mtoto wangu.

Nimefurahi kusoma Swahili lenu

Aha, unasema "viazi ishirini na vinne" kweli, lakini watu wengi wanasema "viazi ishirini na nne." Or wanasema "viazi nne?" Nilipojifunza, walisema "viazi nne" ni Kiswahili kibaya, nahitaji kusema "vinne." Lakini sikuzote nilisikia "ishirini na nne" bila vi-.
