This is a lesson about negation in Swahili. This includes words or expressions used to form a negative form as opposted to the affirmative. For example "I don't understand".
|Nothing: Hakuna kitu
|Not yet: Bado
|No one: Hakuna mtu
|No longer: Hakuna tena
|Should not: Haipaswi
The below examples demonstrate how to use the negation form in a sentence. Don't be shy to use of these expressions if you don't know something.
|We don't understand: Hatuelewi
|I do not speak Japanese: Sizungumuzi Kijapani
|I cannot remember the word: Siwezi kumbuka neno hili
|You should not forget this word: Haupaswi kusahau hili neno
|No problem!: Haina noma
|I don't know!: Sijui!
|I'm not interested!: Sina nia!
|Don't worry!: Usijali!
|This is wrong: Hii ni makosa
|This is not correct: Hii si sahihi
|No one here speaks Greek: Hakuna mtu hapa anaongea kigiriki
|I'm not fluent in Italian yet: Bado sina ufasaha kwenye Kiitaliano
