Hamjambo, wanafunzi wa East Africa!
Hakuna matata katika Jefferson State.
Jefferson si ghali sana,
na Jefferson ni skuli mzuri sana.
Karibuni nyote katika Jefferson State.
Kwaherini ya kuonana!
The lion from East Africa reminds me of a question I often get from Kenyans and other Africans. Q. I speak English and I studied English in school. Why do I have to to sit for the TOEFL exam? A. If you come from a country in which the official language is English, you don't have to take the TOEFL. But if the legal official language of your country is Swahili or French or some other language, you must take the TOEFL! When you go to the US Embassy for your student visa, the visa clerk will insist on this matter. Kenyans will not get F-1 student visas unless they present TOEFL scores. At the moment the only Africans exempt from the TOEFL are citizens of Liberia and South Africa. . .English is official in those countries.
