When travelling abroad, if you are travelling in a group, you usually only need to follow the tour bus and the tour guide instead of worrying about getting lost. But if you travel freely, or one day the tour guide arranges for everyone to travel freely, then if you walk on the streets of a foreign country, sometimes you will get lost and find a place. We have to boldly ask foreign friends for directions.

Before travelling abroad, many friends will make travel tips by the way, and follow the itinerary to play step by step; Or in line with the principle of not troublesome, effective use of mobile phone online map (online map), query location and route, these are all good choices. However, ideals are beautiful, and the reality is very skinny. The sense of direction of some friends is too "good" to be flattered, so it is best to try to learn to understand the directions of maps and street signs.

1. Common four directions:

East; South; West; North. Many maps or street signs often use the four initials of E/S/W/N to indicate directions.

2. Four directions between two directions:

Southeast, Southwest, Northwest and Northeast. (In Chinese, it is customary to put East and West in front, while in English, South and North are put in front.

> Ask for directions Is there no need to ask for directions after checking the route? You think beautifully! The theory is beautiful, but the reality is slapped. Even if you have checked the route before departure and know the general direction of your destination, but many times you are really walking on the road, it is easy to go the wrong way or lose your way because you are not familiar with the place. There are many ways to express sentence patterns. We only need to master the simplest and most practical two sentences and keep them in mind:

3. Excuse me, where is the nearest bank?

Excuse me, where is the nearest bank?

* Nearest, means the nearest when asked about the universal usage of a certain place, I mentioned it when I talked about the airport exchange money.

When the place you are going to is not a specific place, for example, any bank (bank) is OK, any supermarket (supermarket) or hospital (hospital) is OK, you can use this sentence. If you want to go to a specific place, such as a famous restaurant or a popular attraction, how do you ask for directions?
