Learn English – Podcast: Excuse me, could you tell me how to get to the police station, please?

[odeo=22184225]

Today’s sentence Hi, welcome back. Today we are starting a new series on asking for or giving directions in the street. Excuse me, could you tell me how to get to the police station, please? Notes Excuse me, could you tell me… This is very polite. How to get to… = how to go to / how to arrive at… We say this when we know the place we want to go to exists, we just don’t know where it is. E.g. Every town has a post office – so we can ask “…how to get to the post office?” Or, for example, maybe you know there’s a cinema called “The Odeon” in the town. You ask “…how to get to The Odeon?” Tomorrow we’ll learn a similar question which is a little less direct. Bye for now.
