Lesson Two Asking the Way
When you have a trip or visit to your friends or acquaintances alone, you may come across an unknown or unclear address and you will have to ask the way. One day, Mike wants to go to Xidan and a warmhearted Beijing girl is telling him the way.
Láo jià, xī dān lí zhèr yuǎn bù yuǎn?
Excuse me, is Xidan far from here?
Bǐ jiǎo yuǎn, qí chē děi èr shí wǔ fēn zhōng zuǒ yòu.
Yes, quite far. It will take you twenty-five minutes by bicycle.
zuò chē fāng biàn ma?
Is it easy to take a bus?
Hěn fāng biàn, yao zuò qī zhàn chē, xià chē jiù shì.
Yes, very easy. You just take seven stations to go to Xidan. You can’t miss it.
Qǐng wèn dào fǔ yòu jiē yǒu duō yuǎn?
And could you tell me how far is it to Fuyoujie from here?
Nín qù xī dān de shí hòu, lù guò fǔ yòu jiē.
On your way to Xidan, you’ll pass by Fuyoujie.

Is it far from Fuyoujie to Xidan?
Bù yuǎn le, zǒu shí fēn zhōng jiù dào le.
