Case study

Awaits validation

Guidelines

Reading comprehension, interpreting context, conversation
Levels A2-B2
Students are invited to:
analyse the image and describe each character and elicit information (which one is the doctor/nurse, what they are wearing, what is their role in the practice/hospital in general, which one is the patient, his/her possible ailment etc.)
role reading the text, compare the information in the text with the previously elicited information, identify new information
answer the trainer’s questions related to the text (What is Ioana’s ailment? What are the symptoms? What treatment does the doctor prescribe? When is she scheduled for a check-up? Etc.)
provide synonyms of various topical vocabulary (ex. medic, analiză, consultație, control, cabinet and use then in contexts of their own
create a new dialogue with the synonyms related to a different type of ailment (e.g. ophthalmologist)

Results achieved:
students are exposed to new situations where genuine language is used
acquire topical specialized vocabulary
get familiar with the conversation in a medical practice
create new contexts by analogy

Comments:
The project Limba română - oportunitate pentru integrare socială şi culturală / The Romanian Language – an opportunity for social and cultural integration
Provides teaching resources organized according to the various learning levels; they include “words in context (sentences)”, “sentences in contexs”, “cultural orientation exercises”.
Lesson 8 is structured in several stages and focuses on reading comprehension, structure (grammar), vocabulary acquisition, writing, conversation related to a medical topic.
The content can be used as a starting point for more complex activities at most language levels.
