How to ask and give directions in Spanish. Asking and giving directions in Spanish is one of the most useful lessons to learn for someone travelling in Spain or Latin America. In this lesson we will learn how to ask the way to certain places and how to follow directions such as “straight on”, “the first on the right” or “at the end of the street”. Try to practice what you learn here in your head as you walk around your own neighbourhood or even better with real Spanish speakers if you have any as neighbours or if you are currently travelling in Spain or Latin America. There is also the daily activity to complete. Enjoy your Spanish studies!
