Chichewa 101

Moni nonse! Did you know that Chichewa, the national language of Malawi, is spoken by over 12 million people across four countries? I've been taking private Chichewa lessons for a month now and I wanted to do a post to talk about my progress and share some of my favorite words and phrases! For friends and family coming to visit, start studying!! 

Q&A With A Chief

Q&A With A Chief

What does a chief in Malawi actually do? What roles do they play in the life of a village? How do they see their work and their position connecting to the broader political structure of Malawi? If you want to know the answers to these questions, go ask a chief! That's exactly what I did and this post is the result!
