How are you?

It’s a simple question, but can you ask and respond to it in Swahili? We recently had a man come to us for some help with this task.

He was planning a trip to Kenya and wanted to speak the native language before he left. We set him up with Timothy, a native speaker of Swahili for some language classes. Timothy used to teach English in Kenya and was also an official interpreter for American and English visitors. He’s a lot of fun and very easy to learn from so we thought we’d share some of his wisdom with you.


In this video, Timothy will teach you how to ask “How are you?” and how to properly respond.
