Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.
Chemist: Hello, can I help?
Customer: Yes, my wife sent me here. I, erm, need something for a sore throat … and I can't stop coughing. It really hurts.
Chemist: Do you have a headache too?
Customer: Not really, no.
Chemist: Well, we have this syrup. And these lozenges.
Customer: Which is better?
Chemist: They're both good. The syrup is more expensive.
Customer: Oh, well … I'll take the lozenges, then. How many do I take?
Chemist: Just one.
Customer: Sorry, I'm sorry. Er, how often should I take it?
Chemist: Just one every four to six hours. Take it before mealtimes. Are you allergic to any medicine?
Chemist: Then you'll be fine with this.
Customer: Can I get some antibiotics too?
Chemist: I'm afraid you need a prescription for that.
Chemist: You know, you should really see a doctor if that cough continues.
Customer: Thanks. I know.
Chemist: Anything else?
Customer: No, thanks.
Chemist: That'll be £7.49 then, please.
Sometimes, I have heavy coughs. I use syrups, lozenges and tablets for cough.
Every year I have cough and recommend syrup for me.
How often do you get a cough or a cold? What do you recommend?
I usually get a cough or a cold in winter two or three times. I recommend taking or having syrup and having hot drinks such as anise for a cough.For a cold, I think the most important thing to do is to take a bed rest, then have a medicine to relieve pains, also have hot drinks, and chicken soup.
At the moment, I am writing this topic, I have the flu and favor including headache and dizziness. I have got the flu and cold a week ago, and still, they have not recovered completely. I went to the pharmacy and bought some medicine, here in our place the chemist usually gives you antibiotic medicine without a prescription as well. I wish I recover soon from them.
I don't often caught except when I swallow the wrong way
I hardly ever get a cough or a cold, and when this happens is owing to that I was in touch which a drizzly, pour down, or cold wind. In other cases, I suffer a cough when I had been exposed to sudden temperature changes. In addition to lozenges, syrup, and other kinds of medicines and treatments I recommend staying warm in winter.
i got cold almost every morning, its because i hava an allergic to cold temperature, it will make me cant stop sneezing. when im facing that situation, usually i'll boiled water with smashed or sliced ginger in it, then i drink the water. or i make a steam, simple steam, por the boiled water into a basin, put some aromatic therapy oil, breathe the hot steam from the water, it will smooth my breath bcs of the cold
Every year I'll catch flu once or twice and it takes me 5 to 7 days to heal. My recommendation for treatment is to get more sleep and eat more nutritious food. You are also recommended to drink water, especially hot water if you get a cough or a sore throat. I avoid taking medicine as I don't think using tablets whenever you get a cold will be good for your health.
Thanks for your reading.
I usually get a cold once a year. When I get a cold, I often visit a doctor to prescribe some drug for me to heal faster.
I don't usually get colds. But when I do, I recommend drinking lots of water, lemon juice with panela and resting.
