Yesterday we looked at describing location. Today we will continue with the next part of this topic: giving directions around town. Make sure you have seen Part 1 here before continuing. Have a look at the map above and then read today’s lesson:
When you give directions, there are two things you need to do. First, say the directions and then, say the location. For example:
If you are at and want to go to the supermarket you should:
- Go straight on 6th Ave to 57th Street.
- Turn right on 57th Street, and walk 1 block.
- The super market is on the left side, on the corner of 57th Street and Broadway.
Here are some common expressions used in giving directions:
- Go straight on street name → Go straight on 57th Street
- Turn right on street name → Turn right on 57th Street
- Turn left on street name → Turn left on Broadway
If you can remember these key expressions, you will always be able to find your way around town or help someone else find their way. Thanks for reading and send me your suggestions and requests for a one point lesson!
