When I asked for the directions to the HR's cubicle, I got this reply:
Go down the hall then take the first left, You will find the HR's cubicle there.
(I don't remember exactly what he said.)
I am assuming by down the hall he meant to go straight and then take a left.
Can I apply the same logic for streets and roads while giving the directions?
Go down the road and then take a left.
I would really appreciate if someone can explain the meaning of the phrase "down the hall" in this context.
