Woman: Excuse me?
Woman: I’m sorry to bother you1, but I’m completely lost. Are you from here2?
Man: Where are you trying to get to3?
Woman: Well, I was looking for the art museum, but I think I’ve taken a wrong turn4 somewhere.
Man: I think so! You’re miles away.
Woman: Really? This always happens to me. Directions just aren’t my thing5, I suppose.
Man: I think the best thing is to take a bus. It’ll take ages6 if you walk from here.
Woman: That’s a shame… I wanted to walk around and get a feel for the city7.
Man: I wouldn’t worry—there’s nothing to see around here, anyway. Take the bus into the centre and walk around there—it’s much more interesting.
Woman: Oh, okay. Where can I take the bus?
Man: It’s about five minutes’ walk from here. You see that hotel, on the corner, there?
Woman: The one that says “Royal Hotel?”
Man: That’s right. Go down that street to the end, then turn right. Take the first left8 and go on until you see a junction9 with traffic lights. Go over the junction, keep going straight, and you’ll see a bus stop on your left.
Woman: Go to the end, first left, turn right at the traffic lights…
Man: No, no. Go straight on, past the traffic lights.
Woman: Oh! Yes, and then…
Man: It’ll be on your left.
Woman: Right! Got it10, I think…
Man: Well, you can always ask someone else. Good luck!
