Can someone please correct the paragraph below?
When you are walking with your little daughter on a busy road, let her walk on the safer side of the road. Say, the vehicles are coming on your right side, hold her hand with your right hand.
Our Highway Code has the advice that if you are on a pavement, you are safer facing oncoming traffic than walking with your back towards it. Therefore pedestrians are advised to walk on the left of the pavement [sidewalk].
Thanks a lot, pyoung and Anglika!
One of the most difficult things for me to understand is the usage of front, side, back and behind.
For example, I don't understand which is correct walk on your right or walk to your right.
You should have her walk to your right.
You should have her walk on your right.
Can you please tell me the difference between the above two sentences?
Say, the vehicles are coming on your right side...
Can I replace the above sentence with...
Say, the vehicles are coming on your right...
I also get confused with the following sentences. I can't make out the difference.
It lies to the north of Africa.
It lies on the north of Africa.
She sat on my right.
She sat to my right.
