Clinical English

Welcome to my classroom for a day... with the help of the Bristol Family, who has been helping out at FSIL for the past 2.5 months, and their three friends visiting from Minnesota, we were able to put my 2nd year English students through their paces with a Clinical English Class. They had to assess and treat "patients" and then be grilled by a "physician," all in English. Costumes, fake injuries, and all, it was a lot of fun and the students did an awesome job! It was fantastic practice for them, as our students are often called upon by visiting medical groups to assist in their mobile clinics and are infinitely useful (and most helpful to patients!) if they can also act as translators.

Willow, who had a rash and a fever

Hans had a burn from riding a motorcycle... his Dad told him not to...

They were putting Kristofer in all kinds of fun positions because of his breathing issues!

Christina described her fatigue, increased urination, constant hunger, and omnipresent thirst while chowing down on M&Ms and drinking a Coke.. who can guess her malady?
