It's always exciting when you recognize a new word because it's a loan word from another language you're learning.

I'm assuming "mhandisi" is a loan word from arabic "مهندس" (muhandis), which is also similar to hebrew "מהנדס" (mahandes)

Getting mixed up on when to use yeye versus wake.

Yeye = he/she
Wake = his/her
