Situation : Mr. Hermawan is out of his town. He doesn’t know how to get to BCA bank, so he

Man                 : BCA bank? I’m sorry. I don’t know. I’m not from around here myself.

Then he meets a policeman and asks him the direction.

Mr. Hermawan : Excuse me, where’s the nearest BCA bank, please?
Policeman         : Go straight down this street. Turn left at the T-junction, BCA bank is just around         
                         the corner, on your left.
Mr Hermawan : How far is it from here?
Policeman        : It will take about 5 minutes if you go there on foot.
Mr. Hermawan : Thank you very much. I’m sure I’ll find it easily, if I walk there.
Policeman         : Sure, but there’s one thing you have to know.
Mr. Hermawan : What’s that?
