In the last lesson, "desire" was an acceptable answer for "Le desir," but now "hope" is NOT an acceptable answer for "L'espoir?" Is there a difference in usage of these words?

Frankly, I can't see any.

Is a definite article necessary when translating to English?

None needed, as it is also the case with conceptual notions (life, death, faith...)
