Building Terms and Expressions

We have a few more terms and expressions that can help us talk about travel and directions. *You may know and use some of these already!

Street: A road. It can be small, like in a neighborhood or a main road such as Hollywood Boulevard.

Go up: move north on a street. Sometimes, people use this for any direction in conversation.

Go down: move south on a street. Sometimes, people use this for any direction in conversation

Pass: to move by. You can pass a school (on the right or left) as you walk to church.

On the corner: a place that is at a corner of a block or at an intersection of two streets. For example, the church is on the corner at the intersection of 1st Street and Central Avenue.
