Huh! Shouldn't そちら work too? Because it marked it as wrong.

Correct. そちら is more formal than そっち.

そち、そちら、あち、あちら should all work here. As should あそこ. This course would benefit greatly from explaining these things in the tips.

so far I haven't actually been given the translation to any if the words, just English sentences that I have to translate. Educated guesses ftw

It doesn't work... it gives the separate words like "その" for that and the Kanji for "way". You really do have to guess...

Good job Skynicorn. Believe it or not that is the best way to learn language. It's the natural way.

I accidentally turned my phone and it completed the sentence for me! I actually feel a little cheated, it stole my learning experience from me! ^^;

「学校はあちらです/がっこうはあちらです」 should be accepted. "That way" is translated as あちら or そちら depending on the situation. Reported on Oct. 28, 2017.
