BRIEF OUTLINE: The students fill in the hospital language worksheet with the corresponding Japanese.





  1. Hand out the worksheet. The worksheet is divided into 3 parts:
    • Part 1: Vocabulary using "hurt"
    • Part 2: Vocabulary using "ache"
    • Part 3: Special phrases
  2. Using flashcards and gestures go through each symptom. Ask the students for the equivalent phrase in Japanese.
  3. After reviewing the words on the worksheet, go through pages 84 and 85 of the Total English textbook (depending on what textbook your school uses, 'hospital language' is located in different parts of the textbook). On page 84, the students match the letter with the correct picture. On 85, the students practice the dialogue in pairs.



  • I do this in conjuction with Englipedia's Dr. Doctor activity that is designed for elementary school. After each part of the worksheet, I become a doctor and ask one student: "What's wrong?" After listening to their symptom, I wrap their injured area with toilet paper.
