noh kil mi wit laf! usai yu de lan dehn wohd de?
you should stick to the basics first, but kondo means lizard, and to rub kondo fat means to smooth talk. you usually say this when someone has done wrong and you're telling them not to try to smooth talk their way out: 'noh rohb yu kondo fat pan mi o'.

krokro is scabies.

Bubu,

I was trying to say that you know me as koko,but my name is Wali.I want try to learn krio fast,but it's better for me to learn littile by little.I didn't go to freetown,because i have to work & feed my family.I don't know your parents,but do you have any brothers and sisters?I know a family from sierra leone,but now they stay in america.I don't have any problems sleeping .We don't have a lot of rain or masquitos,but it gets very hot here with little rain.Do you like plantain?Plantains are sweet,but not good to eat when they are yellow or green.Plantains are much better to cook when they are black.You can eat plantains with rice,fish & casava.

Oke, this is a start for me.

mi sehf gladi foh fehn ohda pohsin foh tohk krio naya. yu krio dohn behteh boht leh a sho yu smohl tin.
a no se tok go na salon
when combining another verb with 'se', put it before 'se'. some examples:
tehl mi se aw yu de du?
a op se yu du fain
a fil se da titi oba yanda fain
wi no (know) se di salon prehsidehnt na ernest koroma.
a go rohn ohp ehn dohng sote dis palaba go lehf. i noh min se a noh lehk yu igen.
yu si klawd dehn, yu mehmba se de dohn klin (you see clouds, you think/conclude it's daybreak: be careful of appearances)

the last sentence also demonstrates how to emphasise noun plurals. it's often not done unless necessary. in this case: klawd = cloud. klawd dehn = clouds.

a lek fis yasa boku. i swit fo it wi jolof res. yu don mek a angri o.
