Elementary 08: Finding The Taxi Stand

MP3 Audio (Lesson) | MP3 Audio (Dialog)

It is one thing to ask where the taxi stand is, but it is another thing to understand the response. A good part of understanding these instructions is related to how well one understands those pesky adverbs of location (e.g., to the right, to the left, etc.). And that is the objective behind today’s lesson.

 A: Com licença, você sabe se tem uma parada de táxi aqui perto?
Excuse me, do you know if there is a taxi stand close by here?
  B: Você está vendo aquele prédio azul, ao lado do banco?
Do you see that blue building, next to the bank?
  A: Sim.
  B: Se não me engano, lá em frente tem uma.
If I’m not mistaken, there is one in front over there.
  A: Tá, eu desço aqui então?
OK, so do I just go down here?
  B: Não, se você pegar essa rua à direita é mais perto.
No, if you take this road to the right it will be closer.
  A: Obrigado, viu?
  B: De nada, é fácil, é só descer essa rua à direita, não tem como errar.
No problem, it’s easy, you just go down this road on the right, you can’t miss it.
