Learn Luvale

All I remember are the names of the cats. Yiwe (Hey You!), Mwane (Respect), Saana (A lot), and other miscellaneous words such as muzungu (white person), chindale (also white person), cheembo (kinda like "whack" or "janky" or "fazool" in urdu) and jambo (hello - but in swahili). But at the time, I did know how to say How are you? (Ngachili mwane) and I'm fine (Kanawa mwane)!
