大家好!我的名字是Ivy,我來自肯亞首都奈洛比。

Hello, my name is ivy and I’m from Nairobi Kenya.

肯亞位於非洲的東部,我們因為很多原因而聞名。

Kenya is in the eastern part of Africa. Kenya is known for very many things.

尤其是體育產業,許多長跑運動員都來自肯亞。

one of the most important is our sports industry, many of the athletes in the long-distance running are from Kenya.

此外,肯亞是左駕國家。

Also, in Kenya, we drive on the left-hand side of the road.

農業對於我們而言,是重要的經濟支柱。

Agriculture to us is a very important part of the economy.

我們有豐富多樣的動物,比如水牛,大象,犀牛,你都可以在肯亞找到他們喔!

We also have a lot of wildlife like buffaloes, elephants, rhinos…all of them! They’re in Kenya!

肯亞在 1963年脫離英國殖民。

Kenya gained independence in 1963 from the United Kingdom.

肯亞的兩個官方語言是英文和斯瓦希裡語,斯瓦希裡語也是國語。

The two official languages spoken in Kenya are English and Swahili. Swahili is also the national language.

你大概曾經聽過這樣一首歌:「你好,你好呀!你好嗎? 我很好。」(斯瓦希里語)

You probably know this song from sometime in your education, ‘Jambo, Jambo Bwana, Habari Gani, Mzuri Sana!’ (Swahili)

對的!這就是一首斯瓦希里語歌!

Yes! That’s a Swahili song!

肯亞和坦尚尼亞、烏干達共享世界上第二大的淡水湖——維多利亞湖。

Also, Kenya has a Lake Victoria with Tanzania and Uganda. Lake Victoria is the second largest freshwater lake in the world.

肯亞人跟許多非洲國家的人一樣,擁有豐富多彩的文化。

Kenyans like many Africans have such a vibrant culture.

它在日常生活中或是服裝中都可以看見,五顏六色的服飾就代表著我們生活的幸福和喜悅。

It’s represented all of the activities, even in the clothes we wear. The outfits that we put on have a lot of colour. It represents our happiness and our joy to live.

不幸的是許多肯亞人直至今日仍然生活在貧困線以下。

Unfortunately, many Kenyans today, still live below the poverty line.

這背後有許多原因,其中一個是腐敗問題。

This is because of many reasons. One of them is due to corruption.

還有就是殖民者離開許多年後依然存在的遺留殖民地問題。

And even the effects of colonisation, which still exists many years after the
colonisers left.

但是我對未來充滿了信心!

However, I’m very optimistic about the future!

我相信肯亞會像其他國家一樣蓬勃發展!

I do believe that Kenya like other countries, will develop, and reach to a competitive state.

 

問:在肯亞的生活是如何的呢?

Q: How is life in Kenya?

答:我在肯亞的奈洛比長大,奈洛比是肯亞的首都。

A: I grew up in Nairobi Kenya. Nairobi is a capital city of Kenya.

假期的時候,我的父母會帶我和我的兄弟姐妹,去拜訪住在肯亞較為偏遠地區的阿公阿嬤。

During the holiday, my parents will take me and my siblings to visit my grandparents who live in one of the rural parts of Kenya.

 

問:你最想念肯亞的什麼?

Q: What do you miss the most about Kenya?

答:我最想念肯亞的一點是人都很友好善良,熱情好客!

A: One thing I miss most about Kenya is that people they are really friendly and welcoming to everyone.

當你走在街上時,人們會對你微笑。

When you’re in the streets, people will smile at you.

無論何時,當你去他們家裡時,他們都會為你送上食物,把你當作貴客,即使他們沒有預料到你的到來。

And whenever you go to their homes, they’ll provide you with food and treat you like their guests, even if they didn’t expect you.

這就是你需要知道的,關於肯亞的一切啦!

And that’s what you got to know about Kenya!!!
