First of all, herwì is a noun, not a verb, thus it can't be infixed. When talking about precipitation Na'vi uses the verb zupto fall. So it is snowing would be herwì zerup (literary "snow is falling").

Oh I mixed up, but what the "?" mean then?

I don't think it's meant to be a question here.

That question mark makes me read "it is" as "is it" :-[

First of all, herwì is a noun, not a verb, thus it can't be infixed. When talking about precipitation Na'vi uses the verb zupto fall. So it is snowing would be herwì zerup (literary "snow is falling").

came to say this.

Am I correct?:

Taron -> Teraron -> Tamaron -> Tolaron
Srew -> Srerew -> Sramew -> Srolew
'em -> 'erem -> 'amem -> 'olem

Srängew -> Srerängew -> Sramängew -> Srolängew
'eiem -> 'ereiem -> 'ameiem -> 'oleiem

Sran, all verbs are infixed correctly (IMHO it isn't possible to make mistake in one syllable verbs ;D)

Kaltxì!
I recommend to look at Project Ngaynume (http://forum.learnnavi.org/project-ngaynume/organizing-and-planning-a-new-winter-beginner-session-of-ngaynume/), which looks like being revived after a long break.
Even without a karyu, the class times on TeamSpeak were used for asking/answering questions and discussing things.
