Nice practices.

Hello QTN03
As far as I know, there is no easy rule to help remember all the different spellings of noun combinations such as these. Different techniques work for different people -- I'd recommend you try a few and then go with the one that seems to work best for you.

I see traffic lights, crossing and pavement

İn uk, roundabout is usually shown by signs written on the pavement without using wall on the contrary to my country. Traffic lights is standard in All ower the World although signposts could vary.

The first thing that I see is a roundabout, than an acrossing and finally a square.
Where I live there aren't traffic lights, it's a very small town.
We have three or four bus stops.
All of ours streets have streetlights, signpost and pavement.

I see trees and roofs.

I can see traffic lights, square, crossing and pavement near my home.
