A Few Kiswahili Phrases

Hello. I am a student having to learn a few Kiswahili phrases. Can anyone tell me what the following are in Kiswahili?
-Hello
-How are you
-Fine(response)
-Goodbye
-See you later
-I need water
-Nice to meet you
-Good night
-I
Are there any more basic Kiswahili phrases? If so, what are they in Kiswahili and in English?
Thank you so much!

I tried that, and most of the stuff that popped up was Swahili, not Kiswahili.

Same thing Kathleen. The "Ki" refers directly to language of Swahili.

You forgot a very important phrase - 'where's the bathroom?'

Good night = lala salaama (my favorite, as it rolls off the tongue easily and sounds lovely)

KiSwahili = Swahili (one/same)
