用英语问路,指路的常用套语

用英语指路、问路这件事儿,我们早在刚学英语时就接触过。真需要指路或问路,想必许多人也信心满满,认为不在话下!

不过,实际指路时,你是否只会“turn left(向左转)”、“turn right(向右转)”?是否抓耳挠腮,想不出来怎么形容,搞得手忙脚乱?让我们来好好研究研究,这路到底要怎么指吧!

提示专业 指路才到位

How far along a particular road does the person need to go? There are several different ways to tell them.

“需要走多久才能到特定的地点?”这里可以用不同的方式来回答。

1.How many blocks or streets they'll pass.

告诉对方到达地点需要路过多少街区(或街道)。

This works better in a city than in the country, because in the city there are more cross-streets to count, whereas in the country the space between them makes it easier to

lose count, and some driveways look like roads of their own.

在城市里,这样的指路方式更好。城市有更多十字路口可数,而乡间路口很难数,并且有许多私人道路。

For example: "Continue down that street, passing four side roads along the way."

"Just follow this street two blocks."

例如你可以说:沿着这条街继续走,过四个辅路就到了。

沿着这条街走,过两个街区就到。

2.How many traffic lights they'll pass.

同样的,你可以说,到达地点需要过多少红绿灯。

This is good, but you must be right about the number!

这是个很好的办法,但是你要足够熟悉道路才能记得数目!

For example: "You are going to pass three traffic lights before the turn."

例如你可以说:在转弯之前,你会路过三个红绿灯。

3.How much time it'll take and distance in miles or kilometers.

需要花多久时间和距离(用英里或公里表示)。

People used to tell how much time it’ll take to somewhere. But distance is better for when they'll be spending a short time on that path; any longer than that, and your

directions will become inaccurate depending on how fast the person walks or drives.

人们习惯说需要多长时间能到地点。但在路途较快的情况下,说距离可能更好。因为你的预估可能因为对方的速度而造成误差。

For example: "Go three miles (five kilometers) on Foster Road. It should be about five minutes on the highway."

例如你可以说:在福斯特路上走三英里(五公里),大概高速上五分钟。

4.Give them a drop dead point.

提出一个警示型的地标。

A drop dead point is a landmark that tells them that they've gone too far and have missed their turn.

提醒对方,如果看到了某个地标建筑。说明他们走过了或者忘了转弯。

For example: "If you see the library, you have gone too far."

例如你可以说:如果你看到了一个图书馆,说明你走过了。

指路也有小技巧

学会了专业的提示办法,在实际情况中,也要讲究思路和技巧哦!

1.Shortcuts may be faster, but they can also be more complicated! If the person is lost or has poor navigation skills to begin with, give them directions with minimal turns.

捷径似乎感觉更快,但是其实更复杂!如果对方找不着路或者方向感不好,告诉他们最简洁的转向指示吧。

2.Say which side of the street their destination is on.

记得说明白目的地在路的哪一边。

3.Use the word right only in reference to the turning direction, not a distance indicator -- Try to give directions such as "Turn left immediately after the light", not

"Turn left right after the light."

只有在指明方向的时候才说“right(右边/直接)”这个词,因为它的含义可能会让人困惑!比如要说“在看到灯以后直接(immediately)左转”而不是“看到灯后直接(right)左转”!

4.Don't give too much information. It only creates confusion. Just focus on what is essential.

不要试图把所有信息都说全,这样反而会让人更困惑。把最重要的说明白!

5.Have them repeat the directions to you. Whether or not they've written them down, make sure they heard you correctly and understand the route you laid out for them.

让对方重复一次!不管他们是不是记下来了,要确定他们听清楚并且明白你所指示的路途。
