MALAWI FACT OF THE DAY:

Malawi and Scotland have had a strong connection for over 150 years.  This can even be seen in the National animal of Malawi, which is the Thomson’s gazelle.  The Thomson’s gazelle is the smallest, daintiest and fastest of all gazelles, and was named after the Scottish explorer, Joseph Thomson who explored Africa in 1890.

MALAWI FACT OF THE DAY:

There are many languages spoken in Malawi.  You may be surprised to learn that English is the official language of the country but the national language is actually Chichewa.  At school up until around primary 4 level, all classes are taught in Chichewa but from Primary 5 onwards, all classes are then taught in English.
