"If I come, I will cook"
Translation:Kama nikija nitapika chakula
Oops! Now corrected. Thanks for spotting that. I used the future tense though, because "If I am coming" sounds strange. ( I think you would know if you were on your way....)
As I understand it, the present tense can't indicate the future as it can in English. (For example, you can say "I am coming tomorrow" in English, but you would have to say "Nitakuja kesho" in Swahili.) Isn't that so?
