    If you really need help you need to provide more details (non exhaustive):
    1. your first language,
    2. Whether you can speak another Bantu language or Arabic, or both
    3. whether you live in a swahiliphone country or not,
    4. your current level of fluency in Swahili,
    5. the reasons you are learning swahili (accademic, short travel, permanent migration, business, just linguistic interest etc),
    6. the ressources (time and money, if any) you would want to spend learning swahili,
    7. the type of assistance required (chatting or actual lessons etc).

    Swahili are the coastal peoples, Kiswahili is a language derived (mostly) from Arabic.

    I guess you want to learn about Swahili as people and Kiswahili as language.

    This is the right place, almost 98% of JF members speak Kiswahili but only around 5% are Swahili. I am proud to say I am among the 5% who are Swahili and my mother tongue is Kiswahili.

    Umesahau kuweka kwenye profile yako kwamba wewe ni kinara wa gutter politics ndani ya JF. CCM pros mko less than 1% ndani ya JF.

    Tuko pamoja mkuu, kweli nimefanya kosa kutokum-quote, lakini kama yuko serious inabidi afuatilie maoni katika uzi wake.Uwe na siku njema

    I think you are right on percentage but you are not right on "gutter". We tell it as it is, we do not return an old shangingi for a new on pretense.
