(In front of Amtrak Train Station)
Mom: The kids and I want something sweet. Let's have ice cream.
Dad: Sure. We can go to Igloo Ice Cream Shop.
Amy: Good idea! But how do we get there?
Dad: It's easy. Look at this map. We can go along Main Street and turn left on Oak Street. There's a police station on the corner, so we can't miss it.
Meg: How long will it take to get to the shop?
Dad: About 16 minutes.
Mom: OK. Let's go.
(Half an hour later, at a bus stop)
Meg: Dad, where's the ice cream shop?
Dad: I have no idea. We're lost. We're now on Elm Street.
Mom: Here comes a woman. Let's ask her for help.
(Amy's mother goes to the woman.)
Mom: Excuse me. How do we get to Igloo Ice Cream Shop?
Woman: Go straight for two blocks and turn right. You'll see a parking lot on your left. The ice cream shop is across from it.
Mom: Thank you so much.
Woman: You're welcome.
爸爸：大約 16 分鐘。
