    (3)mara dufu. mfn,ujambazi umeongezeka mara dufu
    (4)kujipendekeza/kujibaraguza. Mfn:raisi Wetu Anajipendekeza Marekani

    1. A club ; he clubbed her
    3. Twice as much
    5. Twin sisters/brothers
    6. Catapult

    2 and 4 hata Kiswahili chako si sanifu, (nimelelewa kikristo kwa hiyo siwezi kuna-translate hiyo namba 4 maana English yake ni neno baya) ngoja waje wajuzi zaidi.

    1. He clubbed him/her.
    2. Opportunism/opportunistic (ila huwezi kujipitisha kiherehere bali unakuwa na kiherehere).
    3. Multiplied/increase twofold/three times/..... (e.g. incidents of banditry have increased twofold in the past three months).
    4. Ingratiating yourself to ...... (e.g. our president is ingratiating himself to the Americans).
    5. Hayo majina ya doto na kurwa ni utamaduni wa Kitanzania ukitambulisha yupi kati ya mapacha alizaliwa kwanza na yupi alizaliwa wa pili. Labda na jamii zingine zina utaratibu wao hilo sijui. Ninavyojua kwa Waingereza mapacha wana julikana kama 'twins' na kila mmoja wao anakuwa na jina lake binafsi bila kujali aliiona dunia akiwa wa kwanza au wa pili.
    6. Catapult.

    Kama unajifunza kiingereza eti kwa kutafsiri sentensi kwenda sentensi, utasubiri sana.

    7 First Gentleman - no so common though
    8 Sardine
    9 Spoil/pamper
    10 Cousin

    Wazungu hawana mtoto wa babamkubwa wala mdogo au mama mkubwa wala mama mdogo au mtoto wa shangazi au mjomba. Wote wanaitwa cousins.
