STRAIGHT AWAY OR STRAIGHT ON?
This is often confused by Spanish people so it is worth taking a few minutes to think about it and get it right. The main problem is that Spanish people sometimes say "straight away" when they are trying to translate "todo recto"! The correct translation for "todo recto" is "straight on".
Example: "Turn right at the roundabout and then go straight on". The meaning of "straight away" is different! "Straight away" is when you are going to do something immediately: "I will phone him straight away". The Spanish translation of this would be: "enseguida".
Hope that helps! Any questions...just let me know!
