We proceed with our topic six .
Telling time in Kiswahili
Swahili speakers referring to very early in the morning”alfajiri”as from 4 am to 5 am
(This is specific with muslim prayers)and 6 am to 11 am is referring to Asubuhi.
After noon “mchana”from 12pm to 3pm and evening “jioni”from 4 pm to 6 pm
Lastly we have night “usiku”from 7pm to 5am.so that many Swahili speakers
will use the basic frame work that is divided into four parts
NOTE: Swahili speakers some use the similar clock or watch that are set
In 24 or 12 English hours but they read time in kiswahili.meaning that they have
12 hours in a day and 12 hours in night.no one is confused regardless of
what it reads in a watch set in kiswahili.
Exercise 6 . Telling time in kiswahili write these English times into kiswahili times
Kabongo and sifa make an appointment for group discussion.
Kabongo:Tukutane saa ngapi kuufanya kazi ya kikundi?

Kabongo: Sawa, nitakusubiri
So this is the end of this topic
