BEING ILL-3 (REVIEW): meaning and examples

Good morning everybody.

Today we will continue with expressions related to being ill. So far we have looked at the following words and expressions:

-To not be feeling well (I'm not feeling well)
-To be ill / to be sick (He's ill.)
-To have a cold (Janet has a cold.)
-To have a fever (Rachel has a very high fever.)
-Head hurts (My head hurts.)
-I'm congested or I have a stuffed-up nose
-General aches and pains

Yesterday we also looked at the difference between ill and sick.

Today we will review phrases that we can use to let people know we want them to get better, such as:

Get well soon!

I hope you feel better soon!


I hope you get better soon!

You may also give ill people suggestions of things they can do to help alleviate their suffering, such as:

Get lots of rest.


Drink lots of liquids

However, if you're like me you may prefer not to tell ill people what they should do. ;-)

Monday is a holiday in Barcelona (La Mercè), so there will be no Daily Vitamin. Tuesday will be the last day that we will look at expressions related to being ill.

If you have any questions about today's Daily Vitamin please post them in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website.

Have a great day and an excellent weekend!
