Asking & Giving directions in English? - English Vocabulary Lesson (ESL) In this lesson, Niharika teaches you how to give directions correctly when you are approached by strangers. The quickest/easiest way is : To keep it simple and crisp, you could start by saying 'the quickest/easiest way is to...' Common verbs : 1. Go (left, right, straight, down, up, through) Examples : go left, go straight, go down the hill/slope, go up the hill/slope, go through the tunnel. 2. Take road name : you can also take the road name/number Examples : Take road 1, take the Avenue road. 3. Turn (right/left) : You can say 'turn right/left' if the person is driving as he would need to turn his steering wheel in a particular direction. 4. Stay on + the road name + distance/time Example : You turn left and stay on Avenue road for 5 kms/ ten minutes. There are other things you can mention while giving directions to people. Use transition words : as they make it easier for the people to find their way through. After that : you take road 1. Then : turn right. Next : you will see a bakery shop. When you get to : the bakery, you go down the hill. Finally : And finally, you will reach the new mall. Landmarks : are important/popular/well known buildings, cinemas, restaurants etc. Examples : You will the City hospital on your left. (the hospital is well known in that area) Across the Cookies and Morebakery . (the bakery is popular in that area) Warnings : It is important to give warnings to people while giving directions. This would help them to know what they have deal with own their way to their destination. Examples : It's a on way lane. It's a very busy road. There might be road repairs. Remember, make yourself clear, repeat if you need to so that he knows how to get there without being confused. What if you don't know the correct directions ? There are times you may not know how to give people directions because you are new in the city/area, or you haven't heard of the place that he wants to reach. Don't be rude by shrugging your shoulders and walking away. You could always say : I'm sorry. I'm not from here so I don't know my way around. I'm afraid. I can't help you.

If this video had some pictures to explain the directions I would have really liked it. As there are other videos that are available which are way too easy to understand for a ESL student that shows these across, go straight ahead sort of words that we use for directions with pictures.

I was "wanting" to go!!! That is not English. The verb "want" can never be in the gerund form!!!!!!!
Stuart Cooper (3 months ago)
This is not accurate and there are also some spoken grammatical mistakes in her explanation. Seems like anybody can become a teacher of English these days.

Gian Marco Soldo (5 months ago)
she mispronounces "thought" by saying "taught" she mispronounces "verb" by saying "werb". She is very sweet, and I am sorry to point these things out, yet it is simply not acceptable.
Gian Marco Soldo (5 months ago)
For example she misuses the 2nd conditional by saying "if someone would stop by and ask you for directions" She should be saying "if someone were to stop and ask for directions".
ankit wadhwa (1 month ago)
Yups she used “would”with dependent clause instead of main clause as per 2nd conditional.

Can you please tell me when to use the structure like "is to be done" and "are to be built"? I mean what is the sense of these structures, Present or Future? Second, can you please tell me when "Who" can be used for non-human beings, I mean if it can be used before the word "Company", "Country" or "Manufacturer"? Can the word "Which" be used for human beings or living things, I mean which of the two boys? Is it correct to write? Kindly, teach me. I am from Pakistan.
