1. When you ask for directions, you usually begin with "Excuse me."

(Would you let me know some other expressions which are the same as 'ask for directions'?)

2. What if I look like a fool in front of people.

3. What will happen if I look like a fool in front of people.

4. What would happen if I look like a fool in front of people.

5. What should I do if I look like a fool in front of people.

(What expression is the full form of #2? Is it #3, #4, or #5?))

  • English -

    1. The "Excuse me" is typically because you are interrupting some other activity that the person is doing. If you are discussing a particular location, asking for directions to that location does not need that phrase.

    2-5 require question marks (?). I would only ask #2.

    Looking "like a fool" is a subjective impression that people have. How they interpret this would determine (to a great extent) what will/would happen and what they think they should do.

    Making mistakes is human, leading to learning. If these mistakes are obvious to others, it only makes you look foolish if they are mistakes that occur repeatedly. It would be considered foolish not to learn from your mistakes.
