Goal

Let’s start the lesson with some reading. You can read it on your own, or play the audio and follow along.

Once you have finished, you can go to the next step.


Health vs Work

At the doctor’s

Doctor: So what’s the problem?

Jane: Well, I’ve been feeling dizzy for a week now.

Doctor: Hmm, I see, have you been eating normally?

Jane: I haven’t really had much of an appetite lately.

Doctor: Hmm, any other symptoms, have you had headaches or any other pain?

Jane: I’ve taken my blood pressure three times this week, and it’s a bit high.

Doctor: Have you been working more than usual?

Jane: Yes, I have. This is a very important time of year. I’ve been very busy lately, and I haven’t slept very well for the last few days.

Doctor: I think you’ve been working too hard. I want you to take a week off.

Jane: That’s completely impossible. I’ve just been promoted.

Doctor: I’m afraid you’ll have to choose, your job or your health…

At home        

Jane: I’ve just been to the doctor.

Matthew: Good. What did he say?

Jane: He said I’ve been working too hard, and I should take a week off.

Matthew: See? How long have I been telling you the same thing?     

Jane: I know, I know, you’ve been telling me ever since I got promoted. But I’ve been under a lot of pressure for many days, and I haven’t been able to think properly.

Matthew: What have you decided to do?

Jane: After what the doctor said, I got scared, and I think I’m going to take that week off… But I might get fired.

Matthew: You know what? It doesn’t matter. Your health is more important.
