Hi Raquel,

I would like to concentrate on the three main instructions: go straight, turn left, turn right. Check out some examples:

GO STRAIGHT

You could also say: go straight ahead, go down the street, continue straight ahead, continue straight ahead until you reach Calle Alcalá, go straight ahead for around 100 metres

TURN LEFT

take the first left on Brian Street, the route forces you to turn left, walk one block and turn left at the corner, go to the corner, turn left, go about three blocks, and it’s on your right.

TURN RIGHT

Drive until the next crossing and turn right, at the roundabout turn right towards the train station, continue along Gran Via and turn right onto Fuencarral, a pedestrian street in the center of Madrid, at the stoplight, turn left onto Church Street

Check out this map for further practice.

… Oh, and here’s a quiz:

Try using ‘turn’ ‘go’ ‘right’ ‘left’ on the following sentences (scroll down for the answers):

Take the bridge, drive until the first roundabout and _____ straight ahead on Rue des Casernes.
Which leads to Hofmeister, and then turn ___________.
Get to the bus stop Colladon, then cross the road and ______ straight through the park in front of you.
Continue straight on, skip a small roundabout and start ________ down towards the bay.
Continue straight ahead, turn onto the second street on the ______ and you will arrive at Mercado de la Cebada.
