Well ay-oe isn't "us" it's "us, but not you".

You're using "helps" as a verb there but srung is a noun in the vocab list.  You could re-word it to say something like "We learn with the help of this place"....

Ay-oeng-ìl nume fa fì-tseng-ä srung
1-PL-INC-ERG learn by-means-of this-place-GEN help
(Note that I also added the ergative suffix to us, since we are doing the learning.)

If you wanted "help" to be what is being done in there, you could try the noun form of "learn" as tì-nume.  The tì- prefix serves a similar role to gerunds in English, forming an abstract noun for a verb.  Then you would say it more as "This place helps our learning".

Fì-tseng-ìl srung si ay-oeng-ä tì-nume-t
this-place-ERG help do 1-PL-INC-GEN learning-ACC


Thanks again, and I had this feeling when I was looking over the in/pre/suffixes that -tì, was gonna help me, but I couldn't see where. Thanks though, and it'll help me greatly.

Irayo tsmukan.
