Welcome to the Speak English Now Podcast, your resource for practicing your English speaking and listening. You will also learn about lifestyle and culture, language, vocabulary and how to learn English more effectively.
I’m Georgiana; founder of SpeakEnglishPod.com. My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.
In today’s episode:
- I’ll talk about the most common symptoms that we experience when we’re sick or ill.
- Later, you’ll practice grammar with a point of view story.
Awesome! Let’s get started!
As you’ve probably noticed I’ve been sick for the last two weeks. It started with a sore throat, fever, cough, feeling week … it wasn’t the flu but pharyngitis or bronchitis. I know what you’re thinking: it sounds even worse than it actually feels, right?
When we are ill we don’t rest well and we start remembering how well we feel when we’re healthy:)
I’m better now, even though I still have a cough. I wanted to thank you for all the messages of support. I’ve also been recommended to try out some home remedies to help improve my health:)
Apart from the syrup and pills that my doctor has prescribed me, I’ve tried out ginger tea with lemon and honey, cinnamon with honey, and I’ve been eating foods which contained plenty of garlic and onion.
All these days I’ve been eating veggie soup. I just wasn’t in the mood to eat solid meals.
Over the last two weeks, I’ve been focusing on the health topic, and I’ve decided to share with you some basic symptoms.
What do you think? It’s always useful to know some expressions related to this topic.
Like this, if you find yourself in a country where they speak English and something happens to you, you’ll be able to communicate much better with the doctors there.
In this lesson, I’ll help you to describe some of the most common symptoms that we experience when we’re ill or sick.
When you want to ask someone about their health, it’s very common to use the word “feel.”
