BEING ILL-1 (REVIEW)
BEING ILL-1 (REVIEW): meaning and examples
Today I'm not feeling well, so I've decided to review expressions that we use when we are ill. This is a revision of a Daily Vitamin that I sent the last time I felt ill, in May of 2004.
We'll start with expressions that use "I've got" or "I have."
I've got a headache: we use this when we feel pain (dolor) in our head. We can also say my head hurts.
I've got a sore throat: we use this expression when we feel pain in our throat (garganta).
I've got a cold (resfriado): when we have a cold we are congested, that is we have a stuffed up nose. When we have a cold we may also have a fever (fiebre) and general aches and pains.
There are a lot more expressions, but I think we'll continue tomorrow, since I don't feel well. ;-)
If you have any questions about today's Daily Vitamin please post them in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website.
I hope you have a nice day.
