Answer to Practical Lesson for Going to the Doctor in China

Aug. 21, 2019

Answers:
1. A
2. B

Analysis:

(1) In the dialogue, Mr. Li asks Wang Jun which part of the body doesn’t feel comfortable. When Wang Jun responds that he has a sore throat, we can assume that Wang Jun is talking to a doctor, and this dialogue is most likely taking place inside a hospital. Hence the answer is A.

(2) Based on the questions that Mr. Li asks Wang Jun in the dialogue, such as “你哪里不舒服? (Nǐ nǎlǐ bù shūfu?)”, which means “what’s wrong with you?”, and “这种情况持续多久啦? (Zhè zhǒng qíngkuàng chíxù duōjiǔ lā?)”, which means “how long has this been going on?”, using them as context clues, we can infer that Mr. Li’s job is a doctor. Hence the correct answer is B.

Dialogue:

Lǐ xiānsheng: Nǐ nǎlǐ bù shūfu?
李先生:你哪里不舒服?
Mr. Li: What’s wrong with you?

Wáng Jūn: Wǒ yǒu diǎnr liú bítì, hóulóng yě hěn tòng.
王军:我有点儿流鼻涕,喉咙也很痛。
Wang Jun: I have a runny nose and a sore throat.

Lǐ xiānsheng: Zhè zhǒng qíngkuàng chíxù duōjiǔ la?
李先生:这种情况持续多久啦?
Mr. Li: How long has this been going on?

Wáng Jūn: Liǎng tiān la.
王军:两天啦。
Wang Jun: Two days.

Lǐ xiānsheng: Nǐ búyòng dānxīn, wǒ gěi nǐ kāi diǎn yào, zhìliáo gǎnmào hěn yǒuxiào de.
李先生:你不用担心,我给你开点药,治疗感冒很有效的。
Mr. Li: Don’t worry, I’ll prescribe some medicine for you. It’s very effective to treat a cold.
