Ever feel lost when trying to listen to navigation directions? Well, all you need is more practice.

In this activity you listen to step-by-step directions, and at each step you must select the route that most exactly corresponds to the spoken instruction.

Because this activity is focused solely on navigation, you will get lots of domain-specific practice with the vocabulary and constructions typical of navigation directions.

Imagine your walking around a city in a Chinese-speaking country. As you walk down the street, you flag down a passerby and ask him or her for directions. But don't worry, you won't need to remember more than one step at a time. Because as you get a bit closer, you can always flag down another person.
