Kako v angleščini damo navodila za pot

Ali bi znali tujcu na cesti dati navodila za smer v angleščini? Kako reči: pojdite naravnost, zavijte levo, desno, prečkajte cesto? Zdi se zelo enostavno, a ko nas nekdo vpraša za pot, se včasih že v slovenščini tako zmedemo, da ubogega reveža pošljemo v napačno smer.

A: Excuse me, can you tell me, where the post office is?

B: Yes, of course, go straight ahead, turn left, go past the supermarket, across the park, continue for about 200 m and the post office will be on your left.
