Notice that Swahili pronouns don't change based on gender.
He is American.
Let's use pronouns that requires us to talk about two or more people.
When referring to a plural number of Americans, Tanzanians, or Africans, the M prefix becomes Wa. Unlike English, many Swahili nouns and adjectives change based on whether they are used in a singular or plural context.
Americans, Africans, Tanzanians
Wamarekani, Waafrika, Watanzania
Use the plural form of "African" here.
We are African.
This is the pronoun you would use to directly address more than one person. Sometimes this pronoun will be pronounced and spelled as ninyi, but we will use the more common nyinyi.
you all (plural)
How would you ask this question? Remember to use the plural form of "Tanzanian".
Are you all Tanzanian?
When greeting more than one person, use the greeting hamjambo instead of hujambo.
Hello, how are you all?
Hamjambo, habari gani?
When responding to hamjambo, use hatujambo instead of sijambo.
Hello, we are good.
Use wao to indirectly refer to more than one person.
Remember the word for "okay" is the same as the word for "good", nzuri. However, since this is used in a plural context, nzuri changes to wazuri.
Are they okay?
Fill in the pronouns and adjective. Notice the word for "bad" is mbaya.
He is bad, but they all are good.
What do you think is the plural form of mbaya (bad)?
