    Vocabulary: Emergency - First aid...

    Well well...  Nobody likes this topic...  Yet, if necessary, you have to know how to speak about it! 

    Let's go! This lesson is 'Guaranteed painless!'  


    A hospital with a helicopter (or a chopper)

    landing on the roof. ( = emergency services)

                          a nurse


                  a hospital room



                     a doctor



    We go to the doctor's to relieve the  pain we suffer from  ...

    To hurt = to ache  [eik] ; ache is used in many expressions

    an eye ache                                         an ear ache

    a backache                                           a tummy ache (familiar)

    BUT a heartache is abstract (you have a broken heart) and you have a sore throat (when your throat is aching.)







                To have X-rays


                       a broken leg 


               to suffer from backache


                 To walk with crutches




               a (medical) walker


                   a wheelchair


                   A sprained-ankle


                   To have a bruise




    To have a fever (a temperature)



    A stethoscope to examine the patients

                    An injection


              To have a sore throat




              To have a splinter
