Lesson Transcript

In today's lesson, we'll introduce you to some phrases you will find useful in case you need medical assistance. When traveling, sometimes the body takes a little time to adjust and the immune system is no different. Today, we'll go over some phrases that will help you get to a location where you can get medical assistance. We'll start with the phrase Please take me to the hospital.
Please take me to the hospital is something you might say to a taxi driver. Once again that's Please take me to the hospital. Please to make a polite request, take me is the action you're asking for, and then to the hospital is the location. Please take me to the hospital.
If you would like someone to take you to visit a doctor, you can use the following phrase. Please take me to the doctor. The beginning is the same as the previous request. Please take me to the and then you want to change the location you're going to. In this case it would be a doctor. So, once again Please take me to the doctor.
If things aren't too bad, perhaps you only need to get to a pharmacy. That would be another easy replacement. Please take me to the pharmacy. Be careful though, if your illness needs a prescription, the pharmacist can't give you the medicine without one. If it's medicine that doesn't need a prescription for, it will be called OTC (over the counter) and should be readily available.
If you do have a prescription, the pharmacist may ask you, Do you have a prescription? He or she will start with do you have and the word is a prescription. Let's break it down since it's long - pre-scrip-tion. Do you have a prescription?
Okay, now to close out today's lesson, we'd like you to practice what you've just learned. I'll say the phrase or sentence, and why don't you try saying it out loud? Good luck everybody!
- Please take me to the hospital.
- Please take me to the doctor.
- Please take me to the pharmacy.
- Do you have a prescription?
All right, that's going to do it for today! See you all soon!

Hello Nono,


Thank you for your post and I hope you are enjoying your studies.


The correct way to have this conversation would be.


Pharmacy clerk: "How are you doing?"

Your answer: "I'm ok, but I'm not feeling very well. I have a bad cold."


Although your answer would have been fine. Being "ok" is quite vague and usually means you are not feeling fabulous or 'over the moon.' (happy).


Cheers,


Eva
