在大街上,當你遇到外國人向你問路時,你是否會緊張得說不出話或只能比手畫腳呢?

Engvid的講師Jon提出了一些實用的英文句型與片語,讓你在被問路或在國外要向他人問路時不但能聽得懂對方所說的話,也能清楚地表達自己的意思喔!

 

為他人指路時的實用片語

1. At/on the corner 在轉角
2. Near/ close to 在…附近、接近…
3. Between 在A與B之間
4. It’s on ______ street /avenue & boulevard /court & lane /road 在……街道/大道/巷/路上
而在書寫地址時,通常會使用這些縮寫:St. / Ave. & Blvd. / Crt. & Ln. / Rd.
5. Opposite/ across from 在……的對面
6. Turn left/right 向左/右轉
7. Go straight 直走

 

向他人問路時的實用句型

1. Hi, sorry to bother you…. 嗨,打擾你我很抱歉。
2. Excuse me…. 不好意思
3. Could you tell me how to get to the library/supermarket/convenience store?
可以告訴我要怎麼到圖書館/超級市場/便利商店嗎?

 

以下是講師Jon在影片中所舉的例子:

A: Excuse me, can you please tell me how to get to the library?
B: Sure.
We’re on the corner of Salmon Road and Beaver Street right now. I want you to turn right and continue along Beaver Street until you get to Seal Avenue, and turn right on Seal Avenue and continue along Seal Avenue.
Then, I want you to turn left on Ontario Street. Pass the supermarket, you’ll see on the corner of Ontario Street, and you’ll come to Harpersafool Court.
I want you to turn right on Harpersafool Court, and you’ll see the library. It’s between Thatchers Lingerie and Reagan’s Riffraff.
