  • 地址(dì zhǐ): address. Place/site for residency or correspondence such as “家庭 (jiā tíng) 地址”:home address. It can also be said “住址(zhù zhǐ)”;“办公 (bàn gōng)地址”:office address.
  • 住在...(zhù zài):live….explain one’s home address and can be followed by any word indicating place such as the road name, city etc. For instance, “我住在上海” (wŏ zhù zài shàng hăi), I live in Shanghai ; “你住在浦东” (nĭzhù zài pŭ dōng), you live in Pudong.
  • 路(lù):express road/street name such as “乌鲁木齐路”(Wū Lŭ Mù Qí Road). You may feel strange because “乌鲁木齐” is one of the cities in China. In fact, many roads/streets of Shanghai are named after the names of other cities such as “福州路” (Fú Zhōu Lù),“南京路” (Nán Jīng Lù),“北京路” (Bĕi Jīng Lù) etc. What is interesting is their distribution is based on their rough geographic position in China.
  • ...弄(nòng): express the name of the lane, always with number in front of it. “弄” is the branch of the “路” (road), and only inferior to road in ranking
  • ...号(hào): express house number, always with number in front of it. Unit “号” in address is smaller than “路” and “弄”. “号” may jump over “弄” and follow “路” right after because not all the addresses have “弄”.
  • ...室(shì):express room number, always with number in front of it. “室” is the smallest unit in address and can not be further divided any more.
  • 靠近(kào jìn):close to, near, Indicating the closeness in distance.
  • 路口(lù kǒu): cross street, intersection between two streets.
  • 新华书店(xīn húa shū diàn): Xīnhuá Book Store, a famous Chinese book store brand.
  • 对面(duì miàn): opposite, across the way such as “马路对面” (mă lù duì miàn) (across the street),“银行对面” (yín háng duì miàn), (opposite the bank).
