Vocabulary Builder- Directions

 

Hello! In this lesson, we will learn several nouns, verbs and adjectives in English which are used to describe directions. We have already learned how to give and ask for directions in a previous lesson. Remember that nouns are words which refer to a person, place, or thing.  Remember that adjectives are words which modify nouns or pronouns.  Adjectives give us more information about a noun or a pronoun. Remember that verbs indicate an action or a state of being. Let us look at the most widely used directional words in English.

 

Listen carefully to the pronunciation of each word and watch the shape of my mouth as I speak. Then, say each word while watching your own mouth on the webcam. If you do not have your webcam connected, simply practice repeating the words.

Great! In this lesson we learned many nouns which we use to give and receive directions. Now you can describe where any place is in relation to where you are, as well as understand the words that someone may use to describe where a place is. You may revisit this lesson at any time if you need to remind yourself of any of this material.
