The preposition in in Latin can also mean into. When it does, it introduces a propositional phrase, but is followed by the Accusative Case.

Ad, meaning to or toward also may introduce a prepositional phrase showing place to or toward which and calls for the Accusative Case. Ad insulam natamus. means We are swimming to the island. In provinciam ambulo. means I am walking into the province.

Exercises:
