(In the school grounds.)

Li Hong: Xiao Jiang, tomorrow's the weekend, where are you planning to go?

Xiao Jiang: Teacher Li, I'd like to go shopping at the Xiushui Market tomorrow. But I don't know where the Xiushui Market is?

Li Hong: Xiushui Market? Do you mean Xiushui Street? Xiushui Street is just in between Chang'an Avenue and the American Embassy.

Xiao Jiang: I want to go there by bike.

Li Hong: Come, here's a map. Look, we're here, you ride southwards from the school for about 30 minutes. Once you get to Chang'an Avenue, just turn east, pass through Fuxingmen, Xidan, Tian'anmen, Oriental Plaza, Scitech Plaza, the Friendship Store, and Xiushui Street is just to the east of the Friendship Store.

Xiao Jiang: Teacher Li, I think I'd better take the subway!

Cultural Background

Talking about directions

There's no need to panic if you get lost in Beijing. Being a major metropolis, Beijingers are very friendly towards foreigners, some people could even give you directions in English.

When asking for directions in Beijing, notice that because Beijing is designed in a strictly North South layout, most people refer to the points of campus rather than directions like left or right. So instructions often go along the lines of "go east a hundred meters and turn north", instead of "go straight ahead and turn left". But in other cities in China as in around the world, most people will refer to left and right when giving directions.

A Beijing metropolitan area map is a good idea when you first get to Beijing and need to get around. Aside from passing pedestrians who can help you find your way, you can also seek help from the traffic police working on the streets, because they know the areas like the back of their

hands. Also, people working in subway stations, taxi drivers and others can all offer assistance. Beijingers usually don't refer to streets or suburbs, so it's handy to remember major buildings or landmarks when you go out, to avoid getting lost.

Language Points

1、"还是坐地铁去吧!" —"I'd better take the subway!" "还是" is used to show that the choice has come after consideration and comparison.

2、"往东一拐就到了。" — "Make a turn to the east and you're there." Using the "一……就……" pattern means that after an action or condition occurs, immediately following another action or condition would occur.
