T: So, excellent.

As you know, people can fall ill from time to time.

People visit different doctors if they have different problems.

What is the problem with?

Now, your home- task — dialogues, some conversations between friends:

D № 1.

Hi, Sveta! How are you, my dear?

Hi, I’m fine, thank you! And you?

Oh, I feel awful.

What’s the matter?

I’ve got a backache.

I’m sorry to hear that. You must consult the doctor. I think, you should call a doctor any time you have a problem. The doctor knows what to advice. And you must do what he or she says or you won’t get well.

Sveta, I don’t like doctors and I think I can do without the doctor’s advice. The doctor will say that you must stay in bed and take some medicine even if you’ve only got a headache.

Vika, you are not right. When I feel ill, my parents always dial 999. The doctor comes and says what to do.

I think you are right. That’s a good idea.

I hope you get better soon.

Thank you. Bye.

D № 2

Good-morning, Peter, may we come in? You were absent yesterday at school. We shall have a test-paper in maths tomorrow. What’s the matter with you? Are you ill?

Oh, I have a splitting headache and a sore throat.

Your face is red and you have a running nose. Evidently you have a cold. When did you manage to get it?

I don’t know. I must have caught cold last night after a game of football when I felt so hot that I even took off my jacket.

How thoughtless of you, the evening was cold and windy. Now, you’ll have to stay in bed. Here’s the thermometer. Take your temperature.

No, I’ll be all right in a few hours.

Put the thermometer under your arm. Oh. It’s thirty-eight point three. You’ll have to stay away from school.

Oh, that’s fine! We shall have a test-paper in maths tomorrow, so I won’t have to write it. That’s what I call «good-luck»!

Oh, don’t talk nonsense! Just get into the bed and I’ll call the doctor in. Where is your phone?

Good-day, I’m Diana Ar. What is your name?

My name is Peter.

What’s the matter with you?

I’ve a splitting headache, a sore throat and a running temperature.

First of all: I shall feel your pulse. Give me your hand, please. Thanks. So, let me examine your throat. Where is a small spoon? Open your mouth, please. Your throat is red. Let me listen to your heart and lungs. Strip to the waist. Breathe.

What’s the matter with me, doctor?

You have a bad cold. You must stay in bed for 2 days, until your temperature is normal and you stop coughing. I shall prescribe you some medicine. Ask your mother to go to the chemist’s and get the medicine. Now I shall give you a tablet for headache. But the main thing for you is to stay in bed. If you don’t feel better, call me in 999.

I think if you play sports, eat foods like porridge, milk and fruit you will be strong and healthy without doctors.

As for me, I think you should visit the doctor only if it is really serious. If you’ve or just have a rest. And if you’ve broken your leg you must call a doctor.

You should follow good advice: «Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise». Then you won’t have to visit doctors very often.

We must eat a lot of fruit and vegetables, a lot of vitamins every day. All juices are good for health: tomato, apple, apricot and of course pine-apple juice. Vitamin «C» is good for our health. Garlic prevents us from cold. As you know: «An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away».

What’s the matter?

My ear hurts. And I can’t move my head.

Are you taking the tablets I’ve given you? You must follow my advice. You should stay in bed and keep warm. You should take some vitamins, drink hot tea with honey and raspberry.

Yes, I will. Thanks a lot for your advices. Bye.
