22/01/201122/01/2011CONCLUSIONThe unit is designed because of the need of our students to be able to understand and make themselves understood in the situation of asking for and giving directions. Our school is located on a tourist coast area, and most visitors and foreign residents are English speaking. It is quite common to find someone asking for a direction in English to find a supermarket, the post office, a bank or a travel agency. For that reason we aim the communicative skills to real situations, being communication in itself the main target in our teaching-learning process.It is also due to students mobility, that they will soon find themselves in the situation to get to an unknown place, do the shopping or talk about places of interest in their own country or the country they are visiting.
