Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Southwest"

Other questions about "Southwest"

Q: I live in the southwest of Japan in a very rural area. I don’t get the opportunity to meet foreign people. bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: × I don’t get the opportunity to meet foreign people.
✓ I don’t get the opportunity to meet many foreign people.

It’s not grammatically wrong but it sounds a bit strange to me without “many”; “I don’t get the opportunity to ___ many ___” is a set phrase and it sounds too rough to leave out “many” and change the phrase. In other words, even if you have never met a *single* foreign person in your area, it still sounds more natural to have “many” in there.😊
Q: In the southwest from London bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: "In the southwest of London" sounds more natural.

If you're saying something is specifically southwest of London then you could say "it is southwest of London."
