What to Say When Someone is Sick - For ESL Students


hi i'm joel recently i was a little bit

sick i had a bit of a cough so i was

giving my classes on skype and

occasionally i would cost so a couple of

my students noticed and they were asking

me if I was sick and I said oh just a

little bit I just have a little cough

it's not a big deal

and they tried to say something to me

about that but they they didn't really

know how to say it so I'm gonna show you

three easy phrases or sentences you can

say to someone who is a little bit sick

you know if they have a cold or a cough

something minor this would be different

if they have a long-term illness like

cancer or something like that so take a

look at these phrases right here get

well soon this is probably the simplest

thing you can say get well soon three

simple words next I hope you get well

soon you can also leave out the I if you

want and simply say hope you get well

soon and next I hope you feel better

soon once again here you can leave out

either the eye or the soon here so you

could also say hope you feel better soon

or simply hope you feel better all right

there you go three simple and easy

things that you can say when someone is

sick with something minor like a cold or

a cough alright I hope that this lesson

was helpful and that now you can speak a

little bit more like a native speaker

thanks for watching
