"El norte"

Translation:The north

I just said "North". It insists that the definite article is needed, but in English it often is not: "You go North", for example.

The fact you can use "north" in English without an article sometimes does not negate the fact that you can also sometimes use it with an article. As far as I can remember duolingo always requires you to translate the article in these simple examples of a noun and an article.
