Hi this is a Tutor Nick P and this is lesson 270.
The title of today's lesson is use 'heal' with cuts, wounds, or
injuries not cure' Okay you know, students of ESL
sometimes make this mistake.
They mistakenly use cure
when they're supposed to be using heal.
All right. So let's look at the first example here.
Of course, with the X this is wrong.
If you say, my scratch cured quickly.
No. What you should be saying is
my scratch healed quickly. So remember, of course,
a scratch is a type of cut. Okay.
Let's look at number two. Again with the X.
This is wrong. Her wound took a month to cure.
No. Her wound took a month to heal. Yeah. A wound or
scratch doesn't have the ability to heal, I mean to cure anything
It can only heal
on its own.
Yeah. We say heal because I guess it's
your natural body's immune system is
actually healing. So we don't say cure
cure sounds like somebody else had a
much stronger influence to make it happen.
All right . Let's look at number three.
Again with the X. This is wrong . His pulled
muscle took several weeks to cure.
No. You should be saying his pulled muscle took several weeks to heal.
Okay . Let's continue with the note here. We usually say a treatment
treatment or medicine cures someone. So
we do have one example for that. That
treatment cured him within a month. That
would be a perfect example of using cure. Okay.
Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear . Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
