"I fight next to the city."
Translation:A város mellett harcolok.
I typed: "Harcolok a város mellett" which is marked wrong, but a correct solution suggestion is: "Én harcolok a város mellett".
From what I understand is that you don't have to write én here. So should my answer be accepted or am I missing a different rule?
I'm just starting to learn Hungarian, but in class we learned "verekszik" for fighting. I wrote "Verekszikem a városnál" which is potenitally wrong in many different ways ;-) but I'm concerned about whether verekszik would get accepted.
Harcol is the direct translation of "to fight". Verekszik is a more unstructured "to brawl".
Since verekszik is an -ik verb, you have to remove that suffix before conjugating: "Verekszem a városnál." Also a városnál means "by the city" rather than "next to" it, but since a city doesn't have a defined direction, both expressions are pretty equivalent in Hungarian.
