Part 1: Directions: Watch the video, read the text below, then translate the text in your primary language and read it again.

Many people say the most important thing you can have is good health. You can have all the money in the world, but if you have poor health you’d prefer being healthy over being rich. Imagine participating in different conversations in English revolving around the topic of health. What would you say? What would others say to you? Here are some suggestions:
— You’ve been feeling some stomach pain lately and are in the middle of a phone call with your doctor’s office. What would you tell the nurse? What would the nurse tell you?
— It’s been a year since you last had your yearly physical exam with your primary doctor. You’re now in front of your doctor, and he’s asking you questions. What would you tell your doctor? What would your doctor ask you?
— You watch a television commercial about vitamins that help give you more energy. Imagine discussing these vitamins with your family. What would you say to your family? What would your family say to you?
Being able to have a conversation about your health in the English Language is an important skill. Make sure you think about your health and practice speaking about it in English with others.

PART 2 — DIRECTIONS: Read the dialogue below in English, then translate it and read it in your primary language.
