So, if you have not done so already, draw a map of a small city (at least 3 x 3 blocks) and label at least 8 landmarks (buildings, etc.) from Chapter 3-A. Then, using tú commands, tell someone how to follow your jogging route. In English you would say something like "Go straight. Turn left past the hospital," or "go up Martin St." Your jogging route should have at least 8 commands, and many of the words (turn, cross, go back, sprint, etc. we went over in class. Do look them up as they may not all appear in your textbook.
