Talking about health problems Poor you. How awful! I’m sorry to hear that. I hope you get well/feel better soon. Why don’t you go home. I think, you should go to a dentist. You shouldn’t go to work. If I were you, I would go to a general practitioner. 3. At the chemist’s Have you got something for sunburn? What have you got for a headache? How many tablets should I take? How often should I take the pills? How much cream should I use? You can try this cream. It’s very good. remedies: cream, drops, syrup, pills, tablets, painkillers, vitamins 4. Making an appointment I would like to make an appiontment. When would you like? I would like to come on Monday next week. Is it possible? Let me confirm that. You are going to come/can come on Monday 24th June at 10 a.m. Is that correct/right? 5. At the doctor’s see a doctor – navštívit doktora (I am going to see a doctor this afternoon.) What’s the matter? I’ll give you a perscribtion for some tablets. Take two tablets twice a day. Just stay in bed and take it easy. Go home and rest/have a rest. Don’t work hard.
