Interesting...when I do this sentence as a written translation problem, it accepts it without the hyphen. However, when doing it as an audio problem, it rejects it without the hyphen! Is that intended? Is the hyphen necessary, or not?

When you say Noord-Amerika you usually refer to the USA and Canada. When you say noord Amerika you refer to the north of the USA. Hope this helps
