Go all the way along Chang’ an Avenue.
A Let’s meet tomorrow at the Starbucks near the World Trade Center.
B How do I find that?
A Head east and go all the way along Chang’ an Avenue, at the end the World Trade Center is on your left.
B OK, on my left at the end of Chang’ an Avenue. I’ve got that. Then what?
A Well, you’ll see the World Trade Center – it’s the really tall building on your left. The Starbucks is at ground floor level, near the entrance to the building.
B OK, that sounds easy. See you there tomorrow morning.
1 You can use the verb Head / Head, to tell someone to go in a specific direction, e.g. Head east along Chang’ an Avenue / Head east along Chang’ an Avenue.
你可以用动词Head /向...走来告诉某人朝某个具体的方向走。例如Head east along Chang’ an Avenue /沿着长安街向东走。
2 Sometimes when you understand directions or instructions, you can say I’ve got that / I’ve got that (I understand that / I understand that)
有时当你明白了别人的指引或者指示时，你可以说I’ve got that / 我明白了 (I understand that /我明白了)
3 Again, it is always good to be as exact as possible, e.g.: The Starbucks is at ground floor level, near the entrance to the building / The Starbucks is at ground floor level, near the entrance to the building.
再说一次，在指路时总是越确切越好。例如：The Starbucks is at ground floor level, near the entrance to the building /星巴克在一楼，在大厦的入口附近。
4 Notice the different spellings of centre (British) and center (US) e.g.: The World Trade Center / The World Trade Center
注意centre (英式英语) 和 center (美式英语)在拼写上的差别。例如：The World Trade Center /世界贸易中心。
