I'm very well, how are you, Rodolfo?

R: Allimi. Pedro, mikunata munankichu? Paltata charinimi.


Fine. Pedro, do you want to eat? I really (?) avocado!

:arrow: My apologies, I wrote this lesson with no Internet connection, so I was unable to check which vocab you already had.

Charina = to have

Mana = no / ari = yes

R: Imanalla, Pedro. Imashina kanki?


Hi (I suppose) Pedro, how are you?

:arrow: Yes, imanalla means hello. I was hoping folks would get this from context. :)

P: Allimi, Rodolfo. Imashina kanki?


I'm very well, how are you, Rodolfo?

:arrow: Perfect!

R: Allimi. Pedro, mikunata munankichu? Paltata charinimi.


Fine. Pedro, do you want to eat? I really (?) avocado!

:arrow: The second sentence = "I have avocado."

P: Mana mikunata munanichu. Wasipi mikuni.


I don't want to eat. I eat at house.

:arrow: Wasipi = at home / in house.

R: Paltata kunimi. Wasipi mikunki.


I give avocado. You eat at house.
