Unit 4 Lesson A

Track 3-4-1

A. Listen and circle the best headline for the news story you hear.

Female Newscaster(F): Well, Jim, our next story is a strange one, isn't it?

Male Newscaster (M):  Yes, Irene, it sure is. It surprised everyone. Almost 200 people on a two-week holiday trip to Saint Martin became sick. They're calling it the "holidav cruise disease."

FIt sounds scary. What caused it?

M: The doctors aren't exactly sure, but they know it was something in the food the passengers ate.

F: OK, gwe us the details.

M: All right, here's the story: On Friday night, the ship departed around 10 p.m. with 300 passengers on board. By Sunday morning, some people reported feeling lightheaded. They stayed in bed. By that afternoon, more than half of the passengers had severe indigestion. Some of them got very sick. We spoke to one woman about her experience.

Woman: Everyone was complaining. My stomach hurt so much I couldn't eat anything. It was really terrible!

F:  What's the situation now?

M: Well, the ship had to return home on Monday---- after only two and a half days at sea---- and most of the passengers went straight to the hospital then.

F:  How are they doing now?

M:  They're exhausted---- many haven't slept for 48 hours---- but they’re doing fine.

F:  That's good news. It's too bad they couldn't enjoy their vacation.

M:  Yes, it is. And that’s the next problem. The passengers are asking for their money back, but the company doesn't want to refund the full amount.

F:   What's going to happen then?

M:   Nobody knows. I'll keep following the story, though, and I'll have more details for you tomorrow.

 

Track 3-4-2

B. Listen again. Put the events in the order that they happened.

Track 3-4-3

B. Chad is visiting the doctor. Listen to their conversation. Underline Chad's Problems.

Chad:      Hi, Doctor Park.

Doctor:     Hi, Chad. How are you today?

Chad:     Not so great.

Doctor:    What seems to be the problem?

Chad:       Well, I have a rash on my arm. I can't stop scratching it.

Doctor:     Is there anything else?

Chad:       Yes. I have a slight fever.

Doctor:     I see. Have you been in the xvoods recently?

Chad:      Let's see… I went hiking last week.

Doctor:     Maybe an insect bit you. Please sit up here. Let's take your temperature.

 

Track 3-4-4

   D. Listen to two people talking about how they dealt with their illness in their childhood. Pay attention to the expressions they use.

  1. When I was younger and I had a sore throat my mother would always make me gargle with hot water and salt. Surprisingly, it works.

  2. I use aloe vera. I use it for burns and things on the skin. I think it really works.

 

Track 3-4-OL-7

A. Listen to the passage "Surprising syndromes of modern life." Then list the names of the five syndromes (medical conditions) mentioned.

   Surprising syndromes of modem life

     Margaret's friend is taking a new job in a faraway city. She wants to hold a farewell dinner party at her home. But she can't. Margaret suffers from CHAOS (Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome). Her apartment is messy and she's embarrassed by it. "I've never been a tidy person," she says. "My best friend gave me some good advice. He told me to get a maid."

     Today it's so easy to get information… and lots of it. We receive telephone calls all day long. People expect a quick response to their faxes, text messages, and e-mail messages. For some people, it's too much. They have information fatigue syndrome. There is so much information, they become paralyzed and can't think clearly. "I can't sleep at night because I worry," says Bahman, a college senior. "It's terrible."

     Hurry sickness is a straightforward name for another syndrome of modern life. "I'm always rushing. I get headaches a lot. Taking aspirin seems to help," says Mari, a mother of two and a part-time company   employee. Do you engage in "deskfast" (eating breakfast at your desk at work) more than once a week? Then you, too, may suffer from hurry sickness!

    We've all complained about having too much work to do. Well, how about not having enough work? Underload syndrome is caused by having little or nothing to do at the office. You have to pretend that you're working. Steven works as a project manager. "I can finish my work in about four hours, but I'm afraid to say anything about it. I don't want to be assigned too much work!" In severe cases, people with this syndrome can get very bored and even became depressed.

   Chances are you've experienced phone neck before. Another name for it would be "pain in the neck," because that's what people with this condition experience. Holding the phone between your neck and your ear for a long time causes phone neck. A good long message is the suggested treatment for this syndrome.

 

Track 3-4-6

B. Listen again. Then complete the chart about each syndrome and its treatment in your own words. If a treatment is not mentioned, write NM in the chart.

 

Unit 4, Lesson B

Global Viewpoints

Getting better

Alejandra:  Unfortunately, I get colds a couple of times a year. When I get a cold, I feel very weak and my… I've got headaches, my throat aches, and I just don't want to get out of bed. So I stay home. I take medicines and try to drink a lot of liqruds.

Gian:  When I get sick----and I mean really sick---- the first thing I do is run to the machine cabinet and try to find something to make me feel better. And if I'm not feeling better after a little while, I'll call the doctor and trudge in to make sure that I'm really OK, and it's just a matter of time.

Malinda:  When I was younger and I had a sore throat, my mother would always make me gargle with hot water and salt. Surprisingly, it worked.

Dave: I have an aunt in Mexico that believes that toothpaste can cure everything. Toothpaste can cure burns…bee stings…uh… bites… it's... amazing. "I got a bee sting---- ah, put toothpaste on it." "I got burnt---- ah, put toothpaste on it." "I have cancer---- ah, put toothpaste on it."

Kumiko:  I use aloe vera. I use it for burns and things on the skin. I think it really works.

Catherine:  My father's been recently very interested in acupuncture. He's been having a lot of headaches and backaches so he's been studying up on acupuncture and he realized that if he puts a needle right here for his headache and a needle right here for his back it eases his pain. I think it works for him. For me I'm a little skeptical but I think if you really believe in it, it works.

 

City Living

It must be a miracle!

Tara:   (opening the door to find Takeshi and Mike) Hi--  hi.

Takeshi:   Hi.

Tara:    Thank goodness you're here! This morning she almost fainted, then she felt very tired, and now she says she feels very lightheaded. I don't know what to do.

Takeshi:  Has she seen a doctor?

Tara:   She won't go. She says just needs to get some rest.

Vlike:   Did anything happen?

Tara:    Nothing out of the ordinary. The worst thing is, she has this big meeting with the president of the university tonight. She's been pretty anxious about it.

Takeshi:  OK. Let's take a look.

Tara:  Sun-hee, Mike and Takeshi are here

Takeshi Hi.

Sun-hee:   (wakes up) IIey.

Takeshi:   How are you feeling?

Sun-hee: Very tired… and I feel dizzy… and my stomach is killing me… (sighs) I think I might even have a fever. Oh… why do I have that meeting with the president tonight? I can't stop thinking about it...

Mike: Eat something, you'll feel better.

Sun-hee: Are you kidding? I can't eat. I'm not hungry.

Takeshi: Maybe you should go for a walk… you know, get some fresh air…

Sun-hee: No, I just need to rest.

Tara: (phone rings) Hello? Yes ... no, this is her roommate, Tara. What? OK--  I'll let her know. Thanks. (to Sun-hee) That was the president's secretary.

Sun-hee: What did she say?

Tara: She told me to tell you that tonight's meeting has been canceled.

Sun-hee: Oh, thank goodness. Uh… Mike, can you hand me that orange juice?

Tara: (to Takeshi) I don't know maybe we should call a doctor.

Takeshi: (to Tara as Sun-hee starts eating and drinking) Yeah, maybe we should.

Sun-hee: What's the matter? Haven't you ever seen anyone eating before?

Tara: (to Sun-hee) I take it you're feeling better?

Sun-hee: I am feeling pretty good. It must be a miracle, or something.

Tara:  (to Takeshi) Or a lucky phone call.
