word for "Turn"?
I am taking Rosetta Stone. I even set my Garmin to Spanish. I can't understand what it's saying in one particular area. For turn right or turn left it's saying something like "jide la izquierda". It's the "jide" word I can't make out. I've been all over your site looking for synonyms of "turn".
What is the word that I'm likely hearing?
girar - Gire a la derecha
I've always learned to use "Dobla/Doble a la izquierda". Is it more, less, or equally common to say "Gira/Gire a la izquierda" when giving directions?
Good question. I agree with Dandi that it's the verb "girar." "Gire" would be the polite command, which means "turn."
I just took that lesson on Rosetta Stone and they use Dobla for turn
Dang!! That was fast. I expected to have to wait a few days. I'll bet that's the word.
A few weeks later, but I figured out what they are saying. It's "ir de la derecha" and "ir de la izquierda".
