Many taxi drivers speak fluent English, but are not always familiar with street names, so it helps to know exactly where you are going. It is also helpful to take the phone number of your destination with you in case you get lost. When using a taxi, always take a receipt in case you leave something behind in the vehicle. It is then much more likely that you will get your items back quickly, as the call center will be able to identify the vehicle and call the driver immediately.
