GrammarEdit

The grammar here is pretty straight forward.

  • 「まっすぐ行ってください。」 "Please go straight."

Please go to the left/right.


へ行ってください。
  • "Please go to the left/right."

Please turn left/right at the next corner.:

次の角を
へ曲がってください

If you are in a taxi and want to let the driver know when and where to stop and not throw you out the door, you say:

  • 「あそこで止まってください。」 "Please stop there."
