    In this rough map,
    1.The supermarket is across the bank.
    2.The supermarket is across from the bank.

    Which one is correct?
    I think both of them are okay. Am I right?
    Please let me know.
    I'm looking forward to your answer.
    Bye~

    No, you are not right, only #2 is correct.

    'The supermarket is across from the bank' or 'The supermarket is opposite the bank.'

    There's no need to write 'thank you' posts, Jay. Just click the Like button when you get a helpful reply.

    The symbol ~ may have its uses, but replacing a full stop (or period) is not one of them.
