Instrucciones para llegar a un lugar
¿cómo se llega?
When you come out of the station, turn left and go down the road till you get to the traffic lights. Turn left there into Main Street and carry on along past the theater. At the second set of traffic lights turn right and then take the first right. That will bring you to a small square. Cross (over) the square and you’ll come to a narrow passage in the corner. Go down there and you’ll come out into Washington Avenue. Cross over the street toward(s) the fountain and the office is on the right, between a gym and an office block.
Nótese que también se puede usar el indicativo en lugar del imperativo:
ej. you turn left, you take the first turning on the right, etc.
