Giving Directions

A tourist stops Adam in the street to ask for directions to the House of Culture…

Tourist: Excuse me! Do you live here?

Adam: Yes, I’m a local. How can I help you?

Tourist: Do you happen to know where the House of Culture is at?

Adam: Yes, the House of Culture is in the centre of town.

Tourist: Is it far from here?

Adam: No, it’s actually quite close. It’s only a couple of streets away.

Tourist: Can you show me how to get there?

Adam: Of course, no problem. Keep going down this street, turn right and then go straight

ahead and the House of Culture will be right in front of you at the end of the street! You can’t

miss it.

Tourist: That’s great. Thank you so much!

Adam: No problem. I’m happy to help. Have a nice day!
