I'm absolutely with no sense of direction. So I made up my mind to follow someone who has sense of geography, although I sometimes annoy others insisting a wong direction with certainty which has no reason! ⇦troublesome sort, isn't it?!

I never got lost in my town . And sometimes I give directions to a visitors if I could .

My city isn't very big, but you can get lost if you,ve never been here earliar. Sometimes I've given directions to different places.

Yes. I often give directions to visitors. My hometown is a junction where three main roads join from the north, west and central part of the country. Although there is the new technology, many people get ask for directions here.

Yes. I do that once, they lost in Hanoi and has no internet

Isn't difficult to find streets in my town, because I live in a little city .
But sometimes it have happened someone has troubled for reaching my house, because that stays in a hide street.

once I gave direction to a stranger when I was walking in the road,first the stranger ask me a address and I told him take the left and go straight.it's easy to guide them but sometimes I order food in online and the delivery guy ask my address in phone I guide him but again he ask and then he comes.

Dear Team,
referring to the Task 1,I think that both messages contain descriptions (a nice big house with a swimming pool-It's the first big house on the right),i.e.the view and location of the house.Am I right or not.
Thanks again.

Hello nikoslado

I suppose so, but the first message is more descriptive, which is why the correct answer is Message 1.

All the best
