Hello teachers,

Can you please tell me is there any difference between these two sentences?

1. It is the building next to the shop, opposite to the cinema.

2. It is the building next to the shop opposite to the cinema.

I also want to ask, how do we know that whether the word 'opposite to the cinema' is used for the shop or the building? In other words, which is opposite the cinema? Building or the shop.

Thank you

Hi Roxy9565,

 

1. It is the building next to the shop, opposite to the cinema. The building is opposite the cinema.

2. It is the building next to the shop opposite to the cinema. The shop is opposite the cinema.

 

We know this because of the comma.

 

Hope that helps!

I got lost in a town or city for many times. I feel worried at that time. Then I ask someone for help or search on the google map or use GPS. Using the google map is most useful to me. I mostly use it. But ask to someone is helpful too if they help me greatly and kindly.

I obviously will use Google Maps and if it's impossible I always can ask someone for the right direction

this exercise is a little complicate to me because i'm not accustomed to listening in english and like this exercise is about "give directions" i'm confussed with the stranger words but with attention I can understand the second part of the exercise.
I can say that is really important know how give a direction in the real word.

When I got lost, I usually open Google Maps to find the location, but if I don't bring my phone or the place is hard to find, I'll ask the police to get directions.

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. : )

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
