Lesson Transcript

Expressing Symptoms in English
In the last lesson, we talked about getting medicine in the UK. In this lesson, you are going to learn what to say once you get to the pharmacy. So, once you are inside the pharmacy, you will need to explain how you feel in order to get the right medicine. So in this lesson we’ll look at how to explain symptoms.
Let’s start with a common problem – a cold. In this situation, you would ask: “Do you have medicine for a cold?” We start the question with ‘do you have’, followed by the word ‘medicine’, since we don’t know what type of medicine we want. At the end of the sentence we add the illness – ‘for a cold’.
“Do you have medicine for a cold?”
Now let’s look at how to explain symptoms.
If your head is hurting, you can say: “I have a headache.” If you have pain in your stomach, you would say: “I have a stomach ache.” Both sentences have the same structure, with only the symptom at the end changing. So you will start the sentence with ‘I have’, and then the symptom.
Okay, to close out this lesson we’d like you to practice what you’ve just learned. I’ll provide you with the phrase, and you’re responsible for shouting it out loud. You have a few seconds before I give you the answer. So good luck!
- Do you have any medicine for a cold?
- I have a headache.
- I have a stomachache.


Alright! That’s going to do it for this lesson. Bye!
