I'm wondering, when the complete sentence is read, it phonetically sounds like "Samia-ten doctura-tun jaïda". But the individual words are "Samia doctura jaïda". What is going on there? Can anyone explain?

Those are the case endings, which are generally unwritten. It should actually be "Saamiya-tu ductuura-tun jayyida" but the cases seem to be quite wrong in much of this course

I know -ten is added to some spoken words, but have no idea when this is done or why
