Directions Vocabulary Exercise

If you love to travel, asking for and giving directions is something you’ll definitely be familiar with! But the question is, do you know how to describe locations in English?

For example, if we look at the map below, we can see that the Chinese restaurant is between the bank and bookstore and opposite the grocery store. The grocery store is around the corner from the public restroom, and the newsstand is down the street from the bank.

If something is around the corner, it means they are not on the same street. You have to go around a corner to access it. However, if something is down the street, it is on the same street and you just have to keep going to find it.

If something is described as being between, it means it is in the middle of two objects or locations. Next to is used to describe something that is beside/alongside it. This is different to near, which is a more abstract concept, as it means something is merely in the vicinity.
