On Friday, at the English class (ESOL level 3), we played in groups – some were doctors and others were patients. The play was intended to help us learn new words and familiarize ourselves with the questions a doctor might ask us and the answers we should give. We have learned how to say in English we have a headache, a stomachache, a back pain and many more. I really enjoyed playing with my colleagues, and even at one point I laughed so hard that everyone stopped talking and waited to tell them why I laugh.
I was the doctor, and Paulina, a nice Polish, was my patient. I asked her what problem she had and she told me she had diarrhea. On the paper I was reading, it was written: I see. Are you allergic to any medication? The moment I said I see, my laugh started and I completed: No, I don’t want to see. Paulina started laughing and we couldn’t stop for a few minutes.
Also, I read in class the homework I had written in the notebook. For now I can not post it on the blog because I have left the notebook to the teacher, to check if I have mistakes in writing in English. As soon as I finish writing this article, I’m going to do my homework for the next week. Most likely, if I have time, I’ll post it on the blog.
Although at first English lessons seemed boring, they are becoming more and more interesting, and I like to spend three hours a week with colleagues from all over the world. If you live in the UK and do not know English very well, ESOL courses are a great way to improve your English and meet new people, to have a lot of fun.
I will put in each article about ESOL a picture taken here, because Scotland is a wonderful country, which you deserve to see at least through my eyes: sunset.
