  5. Accusative "-n"?

Accusative "-n"?

Does this course teach the accusative "-n"? I know it's not really used much in conversational Esperanto, but from some fiddling around on Vikipedio, I noticed that it is still very much in use in formal writing.

Just curious.

The Accusative skill is the first skill after the Basics 1, 2, and Phrases skills. I would definitely hope that it's used in conversational Esperanto, not using it kinda defeats the purpose of the case system.

I'd heard that the accusative is used just as much in speaking as it is in writing.

The accusative case is always used when needed in both writing and speaking.
