Translation:The airport is located in the city's north side.
I know this is only the beta phase (and pretty good so far), but some of the answers are so inconsistent!
The DL translation given for 我的家在公园的南边 is "My home is to the south of the park", but if you use the exact same sentence structure to translate 机场在城市的北边 (ie: the airport is to the north of the city), DL marks it as wrong and gives a translation that has a different structure!
"The airport is north of the city" is accepted now. (February 12, 2019)
There's a slight difference in meaning. "north of the city" means that the airport is outside the city, whereas "north side of the city" means that the airport is still within the city itself. I'm not sure which of these translations best fits "在市場的北邊“ - I think it means the airport is in the city?
I think 北边 can mean either within or outside. If I want to emphasize "within", I would say 北部.
Wait, city is 城市，not 市場, which means market.
I agree, it should be. In English that's much more common and if you were to translate that sentence into Chinese it would be the same.
I think Americans use the term "side" to describe a region of a city, but it is quite foreign to me (an Australian). We would just say "the city's north".
"The airport is in the north of the city." I think I never use expressions like "north side" except for particular things or places that include that in the name like Vancouver's Downtown Eastside or the musical West Side Story. Otherwise "side" sounds like a box or something.
The airport is on the north side of the town. - Should also be an acceptable answer. If you answer some questions without given words, then it's hard to remember which English words they were looking for.
Duolingo needs to get with the consistency. Every other sentence allows in / on but this one asks for "located". Seriously...
机 (machine; but in this case it is short for 飞机, literally "flying machine" or airplane) + 场 (field) = 机场 (airport)
Aaaaah, I think if you can integrate some AI with this app, it would be more flexible.
"The airport is located in city's north" is ok too, sentence makes complete sense, so if you can correct it
Shouldn't 'The airport is located in the north side of the city.' be correct as well?
