Fun facts about Chichewa

Like all Bantu languages, nouns are divided into various classes recognisable by the prefix at the beginning of words. Languages belong to the 'chi-' class. This is related to the 'ki-' in Kiswahili and the 'isi-' in IsiXhosa and IsiZulu.

Known in Malawi as 'the language of the Chewa people' (chi= language), in Zambia it is known as Chinyanja, language of the lake.

The Chichewa word for shoe polish means 'medicine of shoes'.
