Acting out a visit to a doctor
• Ss work in pairs, take roles and prepare their
dialogues using the notes in Ex. 7 and the
dialogue in Ex. 5.
• Ss record themselves.
• Select a few recordings to play to the class
S1: Good morning, Mr. Jones. What can I do
S2: Well, Doctor, for the past few days I have
been feeling very dizzy and I can’t seem
to hear very well.
S1: I see. Have you got a temperature?
S2: Yes and my ears are blocked.
S1: It sounds like you may have an ear
infection. I will take a look.
S2: Is there anything you can do to make it go
S1: You can take two aspirins every two hours
for the pain. If it is an ear infection you
will need to take antibiotics and within a
few days you will feel much better.
S2: Do I need to come back and see you again?
S1: Not unless you are not feeling better in
three to four days. etc
