Interview Exams

weather: cloudy
outside: 5°C
mood: okay

We're re-writing new exam questions for prospective candidates and brainstorming on questions. After a while, everyone catches on to the hotel-bellboy-missing-dollar question. This question caught my eye because it has to do with language patterns.

Question: Here are some numbers written in Gusii (Kenya):

57 - emerongo etano na itano na ibere
82 - emerongo etano na etato na ibere
308 - amagana atato na itano na itato
705 - amagana atano na abere na itano

Write 28 and 837 in Gusii.

It's not too bad, but it took me a few. =)
