west does not require capitals in English -the correction West for west is wrong . The west is good

When used with an article, would this be interpreted as a direction or a region?

As a region, 'The West' (home of westerns) is capitalized.

Are cardinal directions capitalized in English? I answered "West" only, as I thought the capital W indicated it should be the starting word of the sentence.

It depends, if you're just saying "Go west" it would not be capitalized. If you're referring to a specific region say 'The West' it would be. Just depends on if it is a specific place.
