I found one example: "Udrirzi Valyrio ȳdrā?"
It means: "Do you speak Valyrian?"
To say, to speak a language, we need to use the instrumental case (Udrirzi is the instrumental of Udrir, language). So literally the sentence above would be "Do you speak by means of the language of Valyria?".

But its also possible to just use Valyria without Udrir. But then we need to put Valyria into the instrumental case and that is Valyrȳsa.

So to answer your question, "I can speak High Valyrian" should be "Valyrȳsa ȳdragon kostan" and "He can speak ..." is "Valyrȳsa ȳdragon kostas".
The negatives: "Valyrȳsa ȳdragon koston/kostos daor"
