I didn't take good care of myself. I didn't wear enough warm clothes yesterday. Now I have a cough and a sore throat.
You should drink some hot tea with honey.
That sounds like a good idea.
You look terrible! What's the matter?
I think I ate too much at dinner last night. It was an all-you-can-eat meal at the restaurant. But now I have a stomachache.
That's too bad. You shouldn't eat so much next time. Right now, you should lie down and rest.
I guess I should.
What's wrong with your face?
It's not my face. It's my tooth. I have a toothache.
You should see a dentist and get an X-ray.
But will it hurt?
No, and if you don't go to the dentist now, it'll hurt even more later!
Oh, no! What happened?
I was making dinner just now and I cut myself by accident.
Oh, that looks serious.
You should put some medicine on it. Here, let me help you.
Section A 2d
Role-play the conversation.
Lisa, are you OK?
I have a headache and I can't move my neck. What should I do? Should I take my temperature?
No, it doesn't sound like you have a fever. What did you do on the weekend?
I played computer games all weekend. That's probably why.
You need to take breaks away from the computer.
Yeah, I think I sat in the same way for too long without moving.
I think you should lie down and rest.
If your head and neck still hurt tomorrow, then go to a doctor.
OK. Thanks, Mandy.
Section A 3a
Read the passage. Do you think it comes from a newspaper or a book? How do you know?
Bus Driver and Passengers Save an Old Man
At 9:00 a.m. yesterday, bus No. 26 was going along Zhonghua Road when the driver saw an old man lying on the side of the road. A woman next to him was shouting for help. The bus driver, 24-year-old Wang Ping, stopped the bus without thinking twice. He got off and asked the woman what happened. She said that the man had a heart problem and should go to the hospital. Mr. Wang knew he had to act quickly. He told the passengers that he must take the man to the hospital. He expected most or all of the passengers to get off and wait for the next bus. But to his surprise, they all agreed to go with him. Some passengers helped Mr. Wang to move the man onto the bus.
