A dialogue. Exercise 14 page 75-76 Arakin.
— Good morning, son! Nice day, isn’t it? It’s 7.50, it’s just the time to get up, isn’t it?
— Good morning father! You see, my throat isn’t all right, it hurts me to swallow.
— Now let me examine your throat then. Now, open your mouth, stick out the tongue. You seem to be quite healthy. Let me take your temperature.
— Isn’t it high? I even feel sick.
— There’s nothing to worry about, sonny! It’s 36.6 oC.
— Oh, this terrible splitting headache! It’s awful. I can’t bear it! Do you any medicine for it?
— Here’s aspirin, it’ll soothe your pain. Take this pill. It won’t do you harm. Anything else?
— Yes, Dad. My back aches, I feel giddy, isn’t it ‘flu?
— I’m not much of a doctor you know, but if you had ‘flu, you would have a temperature. Now, let me see… what did you do yesterday in the evening?
— Oh, I… I… I don’t remember.
— But I do. You were playing computer games till 9 o’clock, weren’t you?
— No, that’s yes…
— So go to school and don’t play me up.
