I tried some, listened to some, and besides being really slow, I didn't do that badly.  Tewti!  Thanks for the thought and the work you put in, ma 'Oma Tirea.

Edit: and other contributors, too!

There's no way I'd be able to say or even pronounce the second audio. Mostly because I can't make the rr sound like a lot of people can. Many people have tried to teach me, but they haven't been successful. I'm very nìkeftxo about it. Pronouncing the rr sound is very important in the Na'vi language so it's only going to make it more complicated to learn.  :'(

*keftxo.

well, the frequency of 'rr is not really that big. I can write a ton without needing 'rr. teh only common 'rr words are trr and krr. other than that, you can get around fine. even if you are one of those people who cant say 'rr, if you try, it will be understood. of course you are not alone in this.

It's not terribly fun...but I like the one I derived: yo yo' nìyol nì'aw. (A surface is only smooth (perfect) for a short time.)

I always have liked this one. I feel like I've seen it somewhere before.

Nì'i'a hì'ia tì'i'a a'a'aw 'i'a.
 ;D

This one's epic too! :D

Yo yo' nìyol nì'aw is mine; it's on my profile. Anyway, I do have another...

Moeyä mehem livu me'em. (May our actions be harmonious.)

Is this correct enough?

Yes. Exact translation is: May two action of us two are harmonious.
Why just two actions? Why not all (frakem)?

You are so right, ma T. A.

It could have been "frakem," but so as to be more of a tongue twister, "mehem" was needed to rhyme with "me'em." But this phrase is one that one person might say when he or she wants his or her action/task to work well with another's so to accomplish a single outcome.

such a practical sentence that seems like it would actually be common, yet difficult to pronounce at a normal or fast speaking rate :D Nice!

Mrrzamrrvomrra 'Rrtayä trr 'Rrtayä zìsìt lu.
Did I say that right? I'm ignoring the fraction, which I'll ask about elsewhere.
ETA: Here's another arrangement:
Zìsìt le'Rrta mrrzamrrvomrra trr le'Rrta lu.

Seem you want to say that Year on the Earth has 365 days :)
A little problem is, that in Na'vi we do not have verb "to have". It is replaced by lu +noun in dative: I have X = Lu oeru X (literaly: to me is X). So correct way to say your sentence is:

Lu zìsìtur le'Rrta trr amrrzamrrvomrr.
I believe number is correct :)
