Talk Like a Ugandan

If you want to come to Uganda, and I highly recommend you do, you need to learn to talk like a Ugandan. You may be surprised to find that just because two people speak english, that does not mean they can understand each other. So here are some helpful little ways you can change the way you talk:

When something surprises you, instead of saying "really?!" say "sure?!"

Don't say you want your food "to go." You want it for "take away."

Instead of saying "me too" say "even me."

Learn to say "sorry please" and "thank you please."

It's not a "diaper." It's a "pamper."

If you need to say "I just need to pick up my purse" say "I just need to pick my purse."

Now just add on your Ugandan accent and you're ready! It may feel strange at first, but you'll get used it. I have!
