A Bus in Bangkok

8. Meeting Another Person

Nick: Excuse me, I’m sorry to interrupt, but I heard your conversation. You’re going to Khaosan Road and you want to save money?
Beth: That’s right.
Nick: There’s a new bus and it goes direct to Khaosan Road. It costs about 200 baht to take a taxi, but it only costs about 70 baht on the bus.
Beth: I see. Thank you for telling us.
Nick: You’re welcome. The bus stop is at the front of the airport. I’ll show you. I’m going to Khaosan Road too.
Beth: Ok. Let’s go.

    I am an native speaker and teacher looking at this site for ideas for my students this afternoon. Both direct and directly are correct . Well done to pick that variation up Nilufar and Martin, excellent job! I wish my students were as smart as you…maybe one day!

    • bill gorman says:

      Yes, direct and directly are both correctly spelled English words and both are correct in their appropriate context.

      My comment is a direct statement (noun). It speaks (verb) directly to the issue.

    Hi, I would like to appreciate you for providing this site. It is really interesting and useful.

    I just have a question, Is it incorrect to say “The bus goes ‘directly’ to * road”.

    Regards

    • Martin says:

      Now, as far as I understand it, direct is ment to be an adverb, because it is describing “goes”. Now, im only 10th rgade, but I think, that directly would be right.
      Regards
