TOPIC FOUR-COUNTING IN KISWAHILI

Countng in kiswahili language is very simple.

One (Moja), two(mbili) ,three (Tatu), four(nne), tano(five) Sita(six) seven(Saba) eight (nane), nine (Tisa), Ten(kumi).

Then tens will follow for examples”kumi”means ten,

“Ishirini”means twenty,”thelathini”means thirty,”Arubaini” Means fouty,”hamsini”means fifty”,sitini”means sixty “Sabini”means seventy,”themanini”means eighty, “tisini” means nighnty,”mia Moja”means one hundred.

Then you will go on counting by adding the normal

numbers as two hundred to nine hundred like mia mbili for two hundred”mia tatu” for three hundred”mia nne” for four hundred”mia tano”for five hundred”mia sita” for six hundred”mia Saba”for seven hundred”mia nane”for

eighty hundred”mia tisa”for nine hundred then you go on  as the same way as how you used to count hundreds  and thousand using num

A million is also called”milioni”,then you have to tell the numbers

as usual to differentiate how many millions are you talking about?

It is one million?or two millions etc.just as how you did in counting

hundreds and thousands.The following is a kiswahili numbers system
