Kiswahili or Swahili as may be known to many, is a language widely spoken across East Africa. It is the first or the second language to most Kenyans and also the country’s official language. Question is, how do we teach it? In this article I discuss with a longtime friend and teacher.
Every week, we share some of our experiences and views on education. Globally, and in Kenya.
We look at the Arts as something recreational, not that hard and could as well be done by anybody at any time. This is a mistake and we know this from what science people do on karaoke nights.

Having been a teacher for at least five years and taught in different parts of the country, Limo has realised that students often suffer from being misunderstood. He faced it himself and as a teacher, he’s seen it first hand and has perspective on how it happens.
Growing up, Mary had dreams of being an air hostess but at some point, she found her calling in teaching. “Teaching is one of those experiences you do not want to forget”, she says. But then she’s no longer teaching. So what does she think about it?
