    the wall on the right, the second wall, the third wall, etc?

    When I describe my room, is it correct to say the wall on the right..., the second wall..., the third wall..., etc? Thank you so much.

    Well, you need a point of reference for those descriptions to be meaningful. One way to do that is to use compass directions. North wall, east wall, etc.
