  5. "Dia berjalan ke barat, lalu …

"Dia berjalan ke barat, lalu belok kanan ke utara."

Translation:She walks to the west, then turns right to the north.

'She/he walks West' would also be a reasonable English translation of the first half of the sentence


Agree, but without the capital letter on west.


How is possible to go west and turn right to north?


Let's pretend West is 9 o'clock and North is 12 o'clock. If you are in the middle of the clock facing 9 (West), then on your right is 12 (North) and on your left is 6 (South) while behind you is 3 (East). So totally possible :) Cheers!


First off this sentence confused me and 2nd off, why do I need the article "the" here??
