Jifunze Kiswahili-Sehemu ya 6

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

1.11:00 am

2.3:30 pm

3.6:00 am

4.14:15 pm

5.19:45 pm

Kabongo:Tukutane saa ngapi kuufanya kazi ya kikundi?

Sifa :Saa Saba

Kabongo: Sawa, nitakusubiri

Sifa; Sawa

So this is the end of this topic
