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.

My hometown is the countryside so easy to get lost if you first time to go there. because a lot of small roads, houses don't have the name, the direction not clearly on map ect.
Yes, I had given them direction or pick them up at the big road.
In another way, If I'm a visitor I so excited to learn how to find direction. You need to ask the local people, find the signal, understanding the culture the place you want to go ... all the way to get there. Something new you can explore.
Sometimes if get lost is not a big problem, right? just my opinion.

As a matter of fact, it is not very easy to get lost in the location where is near my house or be familiar to me. If someone asks me the direction, I will use Apple map to show them the correct information for help. By the way, it is very tough to give the 100 percentage correct direction to people.

now, with GPS we can't lost on the way !

I think that my town is not big enough to lost your instructions, but if that happend, you should ask someone even gide you where you want.
In addation , in my town , many of streets and roads are random.

I think my town is not big enough, but a visitor who don't know it, they could be lost because there are a lot of small street that take you to different places.
Yes, it is common for we can help to visitors, giving directions on how to get to a streets, avenues, squares, etc.

yes, it is. because Tehran is very big and despite a lot of directions in the city if you don't know the directions well. So certainly you get lost.
No, I haven't.

If you get lost in my town you’ll find someone who shows you the direction and propose to drive you to your place.
I want to share with you my misadventure; last holidays my husband and me did a touristic circuit in Germany . We leave the Frankfurt airport we took a rental car and went to Erfurt ( the fist town to visite). The motorway is large and germen people respected the Highway Code it was easy to drive on it and we enjoyed the travel and the landscape intel arrived at night to the exit to the town. Suddenly there was no GPS no internet and we get lost in the city we tried to ask for help to the only person we saw, it was unsuccessful.
Finally my husband went into a restaurant and asked someone to call a taxi for us.
The taxi arrived we showed him the address and we followed him intel the hotel.

very fast

my town is small so you cannot lose in it , it has just one main street .
yes i gave directions to my friends when they visited me in my house
