Prepositions used for travel
Präpositionen zu "travel"

Directions

When travelling, you might need to ask for directions and then to understand them:

  • Excuse me, could you tell me how to get to Broad Street, please?
  • Yes, of course. It´s not far: go straight along that road until you get to the traffic lights. Cross over, turn right and carry on until you see the construction site on your left. Take the lane down the side of it and that will bring you out onto Broad Street!

Conversely, you may be asked for help in:

  • So sorry, I don´t live here / know the area so I can´t help you.

When in doubt, explain further, as the wrong preposition can change the meaning of what you say! For example:

  • Yo: So, after you check out of the hotel we will meet for lunch.
  • Sue: Really?
  • Yo: Yes, I mean, after you arrive, I will come and meet you, OK?
  • Sue: Ah, yes, after I check in. Lovely!
