    those two steps

    A coustomer says to the taxi driver, poinf out "Please stop in front of those two steps" which are in the front of his house. In this case, is the steps a flight or two filights ot stairs? If they are tow flights of steps, what would you say in other frases.

    Thank you very much.

    I wouldn't really call 'two steps ' 'a flight of stairs'. 'Flight of stairs' gives me the impression of more than two steps.
