AFAIK, Na'vi haven't developed a slang word for sìltsan or txantsan.  Probably the closest you can reach is "Oe lu txantsan."

Actually, I think wou oe would work pretty well.
We learn from our mistakes only if we are made aware of them.
If I make a mistake, please bring it to my attention for karma.

According to Taronyu's dictionary wou needs a dative subject, so it'd be: wou oeru  ;)

I am going to remove that. It's confusing, and wrong. I can't really figure out why in linguistic terms right now (It is 7am), so I'll just say these canon expressions:

Wou Neytiri!
Oeru wou na'viyä lì'fya!

So, clearly, it would actually be Wou oe! Perhaps even Wou oe oeru!

wou oeru would kind of be like 'awesome is to me'. I don't know how much this is supposed to be  like the use of the dative case in the Na`vi rendering of 'I have something'. Example: yom lu oeru, which literally translates 'food is to me'.

That said, at least from this linguistic skxawng, oe wou makes sense.

Yawey ngahu!

oe wou seems to make sense to me to.

wou oeru would just mean "I'm impressed" or "seems awesome to me" which isn't the intention.
