Giving Directions

Tim is giving directions to a tourist who is lost…

Tourist: Excuse me! Can you tell me how to get to the bus station?

Tim: Sure! Go straight ahead, go past the church, and take the second turn on the left. Then, take first turn on the right and the bus station is opposite the post office.

Tourist: I’m really worried I’ll get lost on the way and I’ll miss the last bus which leaves in 15 minutes…

Tim: If I had a map, I’d show you the way…

Tourist: Unfortunately, I didn’t take the map at the tourist information centre.

Tim: Have you got a sat nav app on your phone?

Tourist: Yes, I have actually! I completely forgot about that!

Tim: OK, you can put in the address of the bus station and it’ll tell you how to get there. It’s on Oak Street.

Tourist: Great! It’s starting to give me directions! Thank you very much!

Tim: No problem - you’re welcome.
