You want to describe the location of something. It's in front of you and on your left hand side, do you have a short word to describe such a location?
Are you talking about an icon?
"on the left" is the best that I can come up with.

"Pull the car over, that's the hospital on the left."
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
How about "ahead and to your left" or "northwest"?
Thank you and those are really good to know.

But what I really want to know is that:
do we have english phrases like "front left" or "rear right", just like we have "top left"...
I heard ' front left ' but not sure of ' rear right '
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
"front left" and "rear right" sound OK to me.

"Put the wallet in the right rear compartment."

You might want to use a comma if that's your thing. But I'm not sure what's proper. Anyone?

"Put the wallet in the right, rear compartment."

I can't think of any shorter ways to give these directions.

Just what you said:

To your left side.
To your right side.
Ahead of you.
Behind you.


Airplane pilots use a system based on the analog clock face to describe directions.
I do not know but I think that this system was created by military air force pilots.

They imagine a 12 numbered clock face parallel to the horizontal plane of the airplane.



Something directly in front is at 12 o'clock.
Something to the right is at 3 o'clock.
Something directly behind is at 6 o'clock.
Something to the left is at 9 o'clock.

They also use the word "high" to add another dimension.

So, "1 o'clock high" means to look to the front-right and up.

A slang word and phrase has evolved from this directional system
that is well known by all military pilots:

"Watch your six!"

"Kicked his six."

Because six/6 = what is "behind" you. Emotion: smile

You may hear this slang phrase in military flying themed movies such as "Top Gun".

take care,
