1. The focal point of this section is asking for and giving
directions. Between the two parts, the later one is more
difficult. We should know usually there are several kinds
of situations, namely, on foot, by car/bus, etc. The most
important thing we should do is to remember the usual
way to express them and accumulate such kind of
sentences as many as possible.
2. In addition to speech, when somebody asks us the way,
we can tell them the way by means of sign language. In
this way, we can express it more clearly.
Practice asking for and giving directions.
