Hi rebecca. Thanks for the lesson, as usual it was very helpful. I would like to know whether there any way to know exactly what is the medicine for by just reading of the box. Thanks in advance.

Profile photo of xavalin89 xavalin89

    Over the counter medicines usually describe what the medicine is for. However, prescription medicines come with no explanation so you can google them online to learn more or ask a pharmacist. Good health to you!

Dear teacher Rebecca
Thank you very much for your lesson.
You check this quiz, please
You have a fever, but just managed to finish eating some lunch. The medicine you bought says: Take on an empty stomach. Can you take the medicine now?
Sure, why not?
No, not now, because you just ate lunch.
Because when you fever you should take this medicine better you shouldn’t although you just ate lunch.
I want to talk about it because I am a doctor.
Thanks and I am going to study your lesson


what is teospoons?


    A teaspoon is a small spoon used to stir tea. It is also an actual measurement, so if you are taking medicine then please use the correct measurement of a teaspoon, to be safe.

    All the best.

i like u Rebecca . u a good teacher


Dear Rebecce. I m taking ur lesson its really very help me to understand the English. but advise me how to improve my speaking…


    To speak more confidently and correctly, you need to speak more! Try to find a private English teacher in your city or online, or else you could join a conversational English class so you can get more practice. You could also offer to teach your language to someone in exchange for that person teaching you English. My best wishes to you.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

Good lesson Rebecca!!!

What’s the difference between these words: sick, sickness, ill, disease ???

For me they have the same mean, but sick is an adjective and sickness is a noun.

Thanks in advance.

Profile photo of Bruno Bruno

    You can use these words in the following ways:

    1)I’m feeling sick! (This is slang, actually, since we’re supposed to use the word “ill”.)

    2) He has been ill for several days.

    3) He has a mysterious sickness. The doctors don’t know what’s wrong with him.

    4) He is suffering from an incurable disease.

    So yes, all these words refer to ill health, or illness, but are used in different ways.

    Hope this helps. The best of health to you, Bruno.

What a nice teaching way! I like your lessons.

I have been in the US for 7 years and still feel shy to speak English. I feel I am hopless.

I turned 50 a few months ago!
Maybe the age is the reason!



    Please don’t give up, Nawal. Nothing is ever hopeless unless we decide that it is so. We can continue learning all our lives; in fact, learning a language is very good exercise for your brain. So join a class, or find a private teacher and you will surely improve. Most important, believe in yourself. My very best wishes to you, Nawal.

Thanks, Rebecca. This lesson is very important because contains specific words that are unusual.
I have gathered about how to read labels correctly and also I have increased my vocabulary.

Rebecca, could I make a suggestion of subject?
If possible, I would aprecciate to know about some military expressions as “Roger that” for example.
All the best, take care!

question number 5 can be misleading!

Since I’m a pharmacist I can declare that sometimes some labels may give you a suggestion rather than an order!

In that case, if the fever is raising and you you’ve just eaten take on the medincine anyway!

maybe the medicine will work less but less is better than not at all!

As about the lesson, grat one! Greetings from Italy!

Someone believes that the term “over the counter” is sort of counter intuitive, because “over the counter” drugs don’t have to be taken after the pharmacist on the other side of the counter takes a butch’s at the prescription. We can select them directly “on this side of the counter” or “from the shelves”. I don’t agree with this idea. “Over the counter” should be understood as opposed to, or in comparison with, “under the counter”. “Under the counter” is another phrase used when you want to buy something illicit (notice: not illegal. “Illicit” mean forbidden not only by laws and rules, buy also by local customs.) that is not shown “over” the counter or on the shelves. So, “under the counter” means surreptitious, sneakily, stealthily, or unobtrusively. “Over the counter” right here means directly, freely, or without being afraid when buying things. Medicines without prescription are indeed ones that can be bought directly, freely, and without being afraid that you’ve got no prescription at all.

I am a doctor and in the question about if you can take this medicine with the stomach plenty, you can do it in this case, but is a problem in others. I answer good because I understood the concept, but the drugs for the fever can take with foods
