Look at the picture. How many parts of the body can you remember and name?
Let me help you. Listen and repeat after me:
head, face, ears, eyes, nose, mouth, tooth-teeth, throat, neck, shoulders, arms, elbows, hands, fingers, back, legs, knees, foot-feet, toes, thumb.
Now I will point to the part of the body and you name it, please.
Now find the words in the pictures in the fillword. Then make up a word from the remaining letters and you’ll find out the topic of our lesson today.
Well, today we’re going to talk about HEALTH.
We’re in the hospital now. Look! There are so many people. Look at these people. What health problems do they have?
A: I’ve got a stomach ache.
B: I’ve got a cold.
C: My back hurts.
D: I feel sick.
E: I’ve got a cough.
F: My arm hurts.
Fill in the table with these words.
Now check yourselves.
I’ve got a stomach ache, a temperature, a headache, a toothache, a sore throat, a cold, a cough, a runny nose.
I feel ill, terrible, sick, better.
My back, arm, foot, leg hurts.
Now let’s practice the words with Martin.
Martin: I’ll tell you the word, for example: sick and you will make sentences with it, for example: I feel sick.
tooth … I’ve got a toothache.
ill ... I feel ill.
head … I’ve got a headache.
arm … My arm hurts.
terrible … I feel terrible.
a cough … I’ve got a cough.
a runny nose … I’ve got a runny nose.
Maddie and Kristie asked our friends from around the world, “What’s the best thing to do when you’ve got a cold?”
Here are some of their answers:
Patricia from France:
“You should drink lots of water and get lots of sleep. Nothing else helps.”
Sun-Do from Korea:
“We eat Kimchi – a dish made from cabbage. You should try it. The cabbage is full of vitamin C and the spices in kimchi also help.”
Bill from South Africa:
“No medicine – you shouldn’t take antibiotics for cold – that’s crazy. Your body can fight the cold virus.”
Maria from Spain:
“You should eat lots of fruit, especially oranges and lemons.”
Sandra from Scotland:
“You should drink herbal tea with honey and lemon in it and you should relax. You shouldn’t go to school.”
Ron from the USA:
“That’s easy. You should have a bowl of my grandmother’s chicken soup. I don’t care what anybody says – there’s nothing better.”
What do you do when you get a cold or feel ill?
The following word combinations will help you to answer.
Match these phrases to the verbs.
Now check yourselves:
Go to bed, go home, go to the doctor, go to the dentist.
Stay at home, stay in bed.
Take the day off, take some painkillers, take some cough medicine, take some antibiotics.
Listen to the dialogues and fill in the gaps with the words from the boxes.
