Swahili (the word means 'coasts') was originally a language of the coastal people of Africa. Useful phrases include:
Hakuna matata (the catchphrase of Timon and Pumba in Disney's The Lion King): 'No worries.'
Shikamoo!: literally meaning: 'I touch your feet', this is the respectful greeting from a young person to an old one.
Wapi choo: 'Where are the toilets?'
'Wednesday' in Swahili is Jumatamo, which means fifth day of the week. Confusingly, the word for 'Thursday' is Alhamisi, which is Arabic for fifth day of the week.
In Swahili, a respectful way to greet an older person is with the word 'Shikamoo', which literally means 'I touch your feet'.
