In English, we say "in back" and "in the back" almost interchangeably.

And in the UK. "In the back" (room) or "out the back" (eg. outside).

But "in back" (dropping "the") sounds very odd. Another regional variation (sigh) :-)

What part of the U.S. are you from? I think it's quite normal. Both "in back and "in the back" are used.

"There are more tables and chairs out the back" not accepted 1/08/18. Any reason they can't be "out" the back?

"There are more tables and chairs back there." Duo doesn't accept my loose translation; what say the students?

"In the back"? That English is not spoken here.

Not sure where you live, but plenty of people in the U.S. speak like that.
