Not being an English native speaker, I'm slightly surprised that every different English word for "washing" has its exact counterpart in Kiswahili, to the point that using "washing" instead of "sweeping" to translate "kufagia" would be dramatically faulty. In any way, I question the pedagogic value of these nuances at this level...
