"Mwanafunzi wa mwisho"

Translation:The last pupil

December 10, 2018



Not sure I get the idea here. Could somebody explain the Swahili sentence, please?


Mwanafunzi - the pupil

Wa - of

Mwisho - last

The pupil of last doesn't make sense but you could think of wa as being a word that connects a descriptive word to a subject. So think of it as the pupil of last place, or the pupil (he/she is) last. I hope that explains it a bit.


Is "Mwanafunzi mmwisho" also correct?
