Hello there, viewer! Great to see you again.
Everyone falls sick sometimes.
Wouldn’t it be nice to call up your sick friend, and ask how he or she’s doing?
You can also wish your friend good health and a quick recovery.
Do you know how to do that? Well we’ll learn it in this lesson!
Listen to all the conversations, and check out the vocabulary section towards the end.
You can also practice the sentences by pausing the video and then repeating it.
Let’s get started now!!
Hi Jeremy!
Hi Alyssa.
Are you feeling better now?
Yeah, just a bit. I am still feeling nauseous.
Did you take the medication?
Yeah, but its effects takes time to kick-in.
Oh… I better leave you to rest then. I’ll check back on you later.
Thanks Alyssa. I appreciate it.
Yo Scott!
Hey man! What’s up?
How’s your leg dude?
Broken. I got a cast.
Ouch! So how long are you gonna be out of action?
The doc said 3 weeks.
That sounds really ugly buddy.
Yeah man. I am gonna be bored to death.
Well okay... Just searching out. I'm gonna be out at the beach this evening. Surfing!
I hope you break a leg too you jerk!
It takes one to know another.
Alright mate, talk to ya later.
Marvin, you are Jamie’s neighbour, right?
Yes, ma’am. I live a block from her house.
How is she feeling now? I hope she’s started recovering...
Her parents took her to L.A for further treatment.
Oh my goodness. Was it that bad?
I don’t know. The doctor she recommended it.
They weren’t able to diagnose the disease.
I hope it’s nothing bad. May God bless her and give her good health.
Hey Tiff! Wait up!
Hi Taylor! Tell me what’s up?
Have you seen Ethan? I haven’t seen him for a while.
Ethan’s ill Taylor. He’s got pneumonia.
Pneumonia? How did he get that?
He went out in the snow without warm clothes on a dare.
What? I didn’t think Ethan was that stupid. How’s he now?
Better. I think he’ll be back on Monday.
Treatment is the name given to the medicines and care provided to a patient when he falls ill.
Diagnosis is deciding what disease a patient has based on the symptoms or tests.
A doctor diagnoses the disease after carefully considering all symptoms and reports.
The treatment is done on the basis of the diagnosis.
Nausea is the feeling that you are going to throw up.
When you feel you are going to vomit, you are feeling nauseous.
When something starts having an effect, it is said to kick-in
For example : The pain-killer I took kicked in after 5 minutes and my headache disappeared.
When you check back on something or someone, you check to make sure they are okay.
When you check-back on ill friends, you talk to them again to find out how they are doing.
When someone is out of action, they are not able to perform properly.
This can happen when they fall ill.
Jerk is an insult. When someone is very irritating or rude, that person is being a jerk.
Don’t use it too often, because it’s a bad word.
