    Default the podium is in the front middle????

    How do you say when you describe something which is in the front and also in the middle? I mean ... imagine there is a podium in the front of the classroom, how can I tell the position of it to the students?

    I would say it's at the front in the middle

    You could try to describe it using words such as centrally anterior, but this would most likely cause confusion.

    "The podium is located front middle of the room" OR ".....up front middle....." (are two possibilities).

    Not in BrE -'front middle' sounds very odd. I'd say 'it's at the front and in the middle'
