Ryan: Excuse me please, do you know how to reach St. Peter’s Church?
Duke: Oh sure! It’s actually a bit far from here. You’ll have to get a taxi and go to Ken Street.
Ryan: So, it is on Ken Street, right?
Duke: Yes. Go down to the King’s corner, and there you’ll see the signboard to the cathedral.
Ryan: Yeah, got it. Thank you.
Duke: Just tell the taxi that you need to get down to the King’s corner, Okay?
Ryan: Okay. Thank you very much.
Duke: Don’t mention it!
Emily: Hello, I need to photocopy some forms, can you tell me where I can do that?
Ann: Hmm… Yes, there’s a photocopy shop at Sam’s Plaza. Just walk left from the intersection. It is only three minutes away.
Emily: Thank you so much.
Ann: You’re welcome. Have a good day!
Emily: Same to you...Oh, can I find a good restaurant up there?
Ann: No. For a restaurant you will have to walk straight. You will see the Foodmart on the other side of the street.
Emily: Thanks again!
Ann: My pleasure!
Ann: Hello there! Do you know where’s Joe’s place?
Ryan: There are many Joes around here. What’s his last name?
Ann: It’s Simpsons.
Ryan: Joe Simpsons...Are you talking about Army Joe?
Ann: Yeah, he is an Army vet.
Ryan: Okay, just turn right from that crossroad. Before you reach the other crossroad, look for the house with the red roof and some Eucalyptus trees. That’s Army Joe’s place.
Ann: Thank you so much.
Ryan: That’s alright.
Duke: Emily, how can I get to the town fair?
Emily: Take the next right turn from here. After walking for about 5 minutes, take the subway, go towards Rodney Street, from there you.
Duke: Hold on. Just tell me which way to go from here again, please.
Emily: You have to walk right from this intersection.
Duke: Okay, thanks. I’ll just ask some more people when I get to the subway.
Emily : Sure. Hope you have a great time at the fair.
Duke : Yes, I’m meeting my family there.
