Hospital Scene 2

Ashlie and Stephen go to hospital, where Stephen is examined and has X-rays taken.

Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to the Tasks and do the activities. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.

Task 1

Task 2

Task 3

We can use the word 'just' to be more polite and to reassure people. For example, the doctor says:

  • The nurse just needs to do some tests.

We usually use 'just' before the main verb in a sentence:

  • Can you just wait for a few minutes?
  • Just try to relax.

If you can't move a bone. This bone has probably been broken.

I think Stephen was called Mr.Clumsy by Ash is so funny, he fell twice and finally must be in hospital.

I just need to pass my exam.

I was once taken to hospital with an Ambulance from the youth hostel as a six form college called Gymnasium student while taking an examination in Berlin.

When i want to see the doctor i have to follow simple procedures,first of all i should say my name and tell what happend with me .Then i will have been waiting for a long time to see the doctor.Then doctor is doing a quick examination, listening and take my blood pressure,after that he will be able to say my diagnosis and maybe prescribe me some medication. I can say that i have already had bad experience in my life concerning this situation in this video but i am only stretched my ankle but when this happend i thought that i broken my leg because i was feeling so severe pain and could not walk too .In generally ,if you are broken a bone you will be feeling hurt in your injured part of body and will not be able moving

Hello Teachers ,

Here just below the picture / the video screen / is written that ' Rob is examined and has X-rays taken ' . I do hope that Rob is safe and sound , and he doesn't need any medical attendance .
May be it just should be ' Stephen ' written there ?

Thank you ,

Best wishes,

Hello iliya_b,

Hello The LearnEnglish Team, would you mind telling me if it is acceptable when I make a mistake in tag questions among natives like here the nurse says, 'Right, you say it’s your ankle then, is it?', please?
