Our current unit is about different kinds of sickness. We learnt new vocabulary such as different sicknesses and how to have a conversation more specifically how to make an appointment, talking to the doctor and more. Some keywords that I learned is sickness are 嗓子疼 (sǎngzi téng) sore throat and 感冒 (gǎnmào) cold, and more.
We also learned how to make an appointment with a nurse to see the doctor during this unit. I learned that when we visit the doctor he would ask us ‘你常生病吗’. We could say our symptoms by saying ‘头痛 和嗓子疼’.
We all have different learning process but I learned to memorize my script by looking at a sentence once then trying it without it and if I can’t I would look at it again and try again. We first learned the key words then had a quiz and then we were supposed to make an imovie with 3 parts. The first one talking to a friend and talking about the symptoms and the second one was making an appointment with the nurse and the last one was with the doctor at the hospital.
