It helps to identify what you want once you travel, outside your normal area of residence you will be required to identify roads on maps, food on the menu and items in markets and even without knowing their native names you can easily replace the names with the words "...this/that" (hii/ile). In a restaurant you may say "may I have this dish?" or on the road you may ask a native "does that road lead to the beach?" Get instant access to the Swahili Language Set.
