Do the preparation exercise before you listen. Then, look at the map and listen to the directions while you do the other exercises.

Dear Editor,
My english teacher tought me " go straight ahead " but in this listening part you use " go straight on " ı wonder is there any difference between these two phrases in daily usage.
If you answer my question ı would be happy...

Hi bilko. Those two phrases have the same meaning and in general you can use either one.

There's a small difference in usage: 'go straight on' is often used after some place that you mention (e.g. 'After the traffic lights, go straight on') and I think 'go straight ahead' is less common for this.

Well, if I have a cellphone with internet I search the location to the place I wanna go, but if I don't have one, I look for someone to ask him to tell me some directions to the place that I want to go.

Usually, before traveling I look for a map or use GPS, in this way I know the place. In any case, if I get lost, I ask someone how to get to my destination.

Depends on the situation, if I do not know where I am then I would go to the police or the other would be to mark someone to pick me up where I am or that a person would give me directions to a police station to mark my mom.

When I get lost I try to look for help, but if I don't find my mom or dad I use my phone to call them and go with them.
