How to Ask for Directions?


Being in a new place itself gets overwhelming enough to have you lose your direction. Yet, if you have someone as company to go through the lost route, it sends a feeling of security. But imagine being lost in a new city, with no one to fall back upon but the locals. To worsen the situation what if the locals do not speak another language but their mother tongue and English, which is the case in most part of the world.
