"Mkuu wa shule ni Mmarekani"

Translation:The head of the school is American

September 17, 2017



In British English too, it should be 'head of the school'


All the sentences in this lesson that use "mkuu wa shule" always translate as "a/the head of school". This seems unnatural to my (American) English. We would probably say "a / the head of the school" or "principal". I suppose it could also be headmaster, or head teacher.

But I'm not sure - maybe in Tanzania, "head of school" is the common English translation, just like "principal" is probably most common in the USA.


I am not sure why we comment as nothing happens as a result


What about "School's headmaster is American"?
