Teacher Maoyong (Mo) gave students (S1,S2) a test during the Yami language class.

Reading:

Mo: citoai na am, pisikingen ko inio, ya mian so nio ji atenngi?
I am going to give you a test, so do you have any questions before we start?

S1: mo sinsi, ngongyod a tao si Paloy ang?
Teacher, is si Paloy a real person?

Mo: iya rana ori am, beken a ngongyod a tao ori, ala niamaog da a kavavatanen ori.
Him? He isn't a real person, just part of a story.

Mo: ciana, misiking takamo rana, pangay kamo rana o vakong nio do kabang nio.
Ok, we are going to start the test, so put your books in your book bags.

S1: ana, mamood ko pa jimo so ipivatvatek an?
Hey, would you lend me a pencil?

S2: nohon, ápey.
Ok, here.

S1: wo, ya malas ya ko nivatvatkan, apia ya?
Oh, I wrote something wrong. What do I do?

S2: oya jia so ipangongopas.
Here's an eraser.

Mo: kamo manngo dang, jia kamo pizeziak, no mian so ji nio átenngi am, pataneken nio o lima nio.
What are you doing? Don't talk. If you do not understand something, raise your hand and ask?

S1: mo sinsi, /kamen/ oya an? no /yamen/ oya?
Teacher, is this /kamen/ or /yamen/?

Mo: wo, ya malas ko nivatvatkan, o manoyong am /yamen/.
Oh, my mistake, the correct form is /yamen/.

S1: mo sinsi, ko na nimateyka a nivatvatkan.
Teacher, I'm finished.

Mo: toroan jiaken a kangay mo rana do pantaw.
Hand it in, and then you can leave.
