Anyone know why Somali English learners repeat the subjects, like "The teacher she was nice." ??

I'm interested in resumptive pronouns and this is a common error in Somali L2 writing. Any idea why they do this? If you speak Somali, can you think of a reason why students would do this? Does it sound more like Somali?
