I am standing at 1 end of a corridor as shown in the above picture.

I want to go to the elevator 2.

Is it correct to say "walk down the corridor and take the second right. The elevator is on the left" or "the elevator is just around the second corner on the left"?

    Grammatically, both are correct, but in fact it's the second right. May 27, 2021 at 16:13
  • What is wrong with the first elevator just round the corner? May 27, 2021 at 17:38
  • @WeatherVane, the 1st elevator is for block B & the 2nd one is for block C and we live in Block C.

  • "It's around the corner." It's obvious they are going to turn the closest corner. Don't make them walk too much. May 28, 2021 at 17:36

The structure is correct, but the first direction is not. The person you're instructing should take the second right!

Also, you could say "the elevator will be on your left"
