It's just how it is. You basically have two parts of the sentence:

{oe zene} {(oel) yivom yerik-it}

Quote:
Oe zene fmivi txa' ?
txa' can only mean hard as in the opposite of soft and squishy. "work hard/try hard" is an English idiom. I'd say something more like "try passionately"

Oe zene fmivi nftxavang.

Kehe, that was very close

To say you like (or don't like) something, it's

Oeru (ke) sunu <whatever thing, no endings>.

You're not the only. Everyone messes up, I mess up. Especially toward the early days. No worries.

The middle sentence "I difficult cant be war" is the closest I can get.

Hover your mouse over the blue text. (both in this post, and the post I did earlier.)
It's the [ navi= "english goes here" ] na'vi stuff goes here [ /navi ] tag.

also, tslam and tsam are ever so slightly different.
