Directions in spanish?
I was wondering, if i were in spain, and someone asked me for directions and if I had to say 'Go straight ahead' what would that be?
I'm sorry, but the most voted answer is wrong.
A la derecha is to the right. Todo derecho is straight ahead.
This site gives the following definition (you can double click on the word "straight"):
go straight on -> sigue todo recto or derecho
I am with LadyDi on this one. I have asked for enough directions in my travels that I am pretty sure on this one.
- Siga derecho = Continue to the (right) -- no not "right" this is "straight" as wisely corrected by Morphine below/above -- I give her a vote. The example is still good.
- Siga recto = Continue straight.
Here is a example:
Siga recto/(derecho as corrected by Morphine) por esta carretera y vire al derecha cundo vea la primera señal que diga "Alto".
(Continue straight on this road and turn to the right when you see the first sign that says 'Stop'.)
Use the "subjunctive".

You might want to stick to the Ud. form if it is a complete stranger.
