"Kwa kweli wanafunzi wanahitaji viti"

Translation:Truly students need chairs

September 5, 2019



Sometimes the "truly" or "really" shows up later in the English.... so could this read, "The students really need chairs."?


not quite the same meaning:

  • Truly the students need chairs - emphasizes the sincerity/genuineness of the statement
  • The students really need chairs - the need for chairs is dire. Emphasis is specifically on the need

the latter would be translated as 'Wanafunzi wanahitaji viti sana'
