I call my mother or father and if they don't answer , I try to find a familiar object or street and go to a place I know ( for example my home or my grandmother's house )

If I get lost, and if I have a phone, just take it and call mom. But if I don't have, I'll find the police or other people for help. But sure I will never get lost, haha. : )

when I get lost in a town,I can get help of a police officer. The police officer can call my mum and dad.

I search for a police officer; also, I can ask a person for directions; or I can ask for a mobile phone to call my parents.

Some years ago, I didn't have phone, so I always asked anyone to find road. But now I'm having my phone and it's useful to find road by google map. But sometimes, google map is wrong so I still need to ask someone

I ask somebody around whenever I get lost.
But, recently, it's difficult to talk to someone. People are busy using smartphones or wearing earphones on the road...
I can only talk to aged people taking time and practice...! ;)

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.
