Chinese in Daily Life-0022( Sentence:126--129): Directions



Hi friends, last weekend we learned something about different forms of transport. I think that after reaching your destination then you may need to know something about directions. So today, I would like to offer you some new sentences about looking for a particular place and something about directions. I hope you find it at least a little helpful in your Chinese learning and in your travel in China.:-)

By the way, the first picture in this page is just a corner of Shenzhen. Hope you can find it someday when you come to my city. :-)
