In this lesson, we are going to learn what to say when you need to ask for directions.
Ashley: Excuse me, sir. May you tell me where to find the art museum?
Stranger: You have to walk five blocks on Water Street, turn right and then walk one block.
Ashley: Do you know if there is a train station nearby as well?
Stranger: Yes, the blue line station is three blocks away from the museum.
Ashley: Thank you very much!
Ashley: I will be driving to the beach this weekend. Can you help me figure out how to get there?
Lisa: I will be happy to help you. Where are you starting from?
Ashley: I will be driving from my house on Lewis Avenue near the post office.
Lisa: You should drive to the expressway, take exit 14 and the follow the Belt Parkway until you see the exit for the beach.
Ashley: Do you know if the beach exit is on the right or left?
Lisa: You will have to stay to the right.
Ashley: Hi. I am looking for the coffee shop in Queens Village. Is it the next town over?
Stranger: You’re in Kings Town. Queens Village is two towns over. You have to go down the road 1 mile and then follow the stone path. You will see a pond when you get there.
Ashley: Is there a sign when I arrive at Queens Village?
Stranger: No, sorry. Just follow the landmarks I gave you.
Ashley: I need to go to a shoe store in the mall quickly.
Lisa: You should take the elevator to the third floor and then walk straight down the aisle until you see Nine West Shoes.
Ashley: That seems far and I have to rush. Wouldn’t it be faster to go to Guess Shoes on the first floor next to the candy store?
Lisa: Yes, it would be. You can exit the store directly into the parking lot afterwards. Just pass the cashier and walk out the back door.
Ashley: Which back door? There are two.
Lisa: The one on the left with a sign that says, “Parking Lot Exit”.
