Harry: Hello guys,
What sports do you like? Do you often go to the gym?
We’re keen on basketball! Today Allan and I are going to the stadium to play a game.
Allan: Guess what? I’m in hospital! I think, I’ve broken my leg – but don’t worry, I’m okay. I’m waiting for the doctor.
I was in a hurry and ran down some steps. There was a banana peel on the steps, but I didn’t see it so I slipped and fell.
I was lucky that my parents were with me. They took me straight to the hospital.
Harry: Oh, that’s a shame! Call me as soon as you get any news.
Allan: Okay, bye.
Harry: No basketball for Allan for a while, then. Well, let’s talk about injuries in today’s lesson. I’m sure, that most of you have them quite often.
