ENGLISH FORM 1 TOPIC 2:GIVING DIRECTIONS

This requires students to have knowledge of how to ask for directions and identify the four points of a compass; using various prepositions such as: near to, in front of, beside, behind, under, adjacentto,between, on, in, to, by, at, into, onto, etc. for different situations.
Words used when giving directions
  • Go straight
  • Cross bridge
  • Turn left
  • Keep straight
  • Turn right
  • You will see
  • Cross junction
  • Walk along



Important issues when giving directions

  • Use basic English to offer directions.
  • Short phrases are best.
  • Speak slowly.
  • Use clear pronunciation.
  • Spell out words if necessary.
In giving directions:
  1. Use transitions: After that, then, next, when you get to……… go
  2. Specify distance: Some people feel better knowing how long it will take to get to their destination, example “it’s about five minutes away.”
  3. Use landmarks:”You will see large clock”, “You will see blue large building.”
  4. More useful language: It’s on [street name], It’s opposite …., It’s near …..
  5. Repeat yourself: If you repeat the direction again, the other person will feel comfortable.
  6. Clarify:Make sure that the person understands your directions, example “did you get all that?”
  7. Don’t guess: I am sorry, I’m not from here, I’m afraid I can’t help you.”
