Feel Well

This activity is based on the doctor visit dialog in New Horizon's English textbook, but this one is more entertaining and it teaches various names of illnesses.

  • I start out by asking the students what the word 'doctor' means in Japanese and then asking them what a 'patient' is. Usually somebody can deduce that if one is a 'isha' the other must be the 'kanja.'
  • Then, I go over all the names of the illnesses and make sure the students know what they are, as well as what all of the responses mean. Leave time for the students to write down the meanings.
  • Finally, the students split into partners and have at the activity.


  • I found that if you teach this lesson in the 1st period of the day, students don't understand the joke at the end of the worksheet. BEWARE!
