I also remember that AT the University we were asked to present a paper on this topic, and numbers didn't lie. Many students supported Kiswahili.

Sympathy vs Empathy: Differences

Definitions Sympathy Refers to the shared feeling or feeling pity or sorry for someone or something. It means kindness or onsolation. Empathy Refers to the ability to feel what another person is feeling (that is, to be exactly in their shoes). Empathy goes beyond Sympathy. For example, when someone feels when his son is sick. Differences   Therefore, sympathy is just a simple expression of concern for another person's misfortune or loss. For instance, when you wish someone to be better when they are sick.
