Ne devus esti la akuzativo tie cxi; "malsanajn" devus esti "malsanaj"

Nepardoninde :-)

I thought lernejano was a pupil? And studento was a student?

Context. A grade school, middle school, or high school student is a lernejano.

Kial ne estas "lernantoj" gxustiga?

"Estas kvin aliaj lernantoj en la lernejo, sed ili estas malsanaj"

Mi ne vidas problemon.

Is there a distinction between lernanto and lernejano?

Lernejano is learn-place-member, right? Lernanto is learn-"do-er" ?

Lernejano = student at a k-12 school -- usually under 18 years old.

Lernanto = anybody who is learning.

Lernanto is more general, but if I were grading it, I would accept it in this context.

Keep in mind that "studi" generally means "to have a your major" and "studento" is usually "university student."
