    How to prepare a patient script for talking to an ENT

    I have Japanese ENT doctor. She sees some English speaking patients some of which are children.
    How do I prepare a realistic script for myself as a patient considering that there is interaction between a doctor and a patient? Simple enough to cover cold-like symptoms but how to cover other sorts of conditions. Is there a TV show covering ENTs?
    I have been teaching doctors and nurses a bit before.
    For her, she just needs to organically respond to me with some set phrases to my speech.

    Are you role playing? Are you the patient?

    You could try role-playing.

    The script is for me.

    How do I roleplay these situations?

    I have done some preparation for the student to handle the roleplay.

    I don't get sick with every condition.

    Note my changes above. Please make sure you write in complete sentences on the forum - learners will assume that everything an English teacher (especially a native speaker) writes is correct.

    What are the set phrases that you want her to include? If you have specific phrases in mind, you'll need to write your script in a way that elicits those responses.

    I don't know of any TV shows that concentrate on ENT.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    For her, she just needs to organically respond to me with some set phrases. As I am present and we do more than converse, me is more correct. We do pretend medicine and gesture.

    Set phrases such as:

    What is your medicine regimen?
    How long have you been sick?

    I have done this roleplay with real life content that I found online. Unfortunately, there isn't enough relevant real life content. Content relevant for an initial consultation. I write on Kindle and I have a three year old son. He distracts when writing on the PC. This a teacher subforum- ESL students shouldn't reading these threads as good English.

    As ems wrote, "learners will assume that everything an English teacher (especially a native speaker) writes is correct".

    All of us here, especially those who say they are English teachers, must expect any slips they make to be corrected, or at least pointed out. We do not want learners to get the impression that incorrect language is correct.

    Re: How to prepare a patient script for talking to an ENT

    Searching for patient scenarios brought up these rather good resources. If anyone wants to suggest how to do some of them especially case 4-8 which don't have as much medical terminology as the other ones.
    http://www.nottinghamscrubs.co.uk/ac...esource?id=619
    And the first 10 cases that are free read in the following
    https://www.scribd.com/document/1019...ar-Nose-Throat

    Don't worry about the medical terminology as it shouldn't affect the roleplay for you. I will handle it myself.

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: How to prepare a patient script for talking to an ENT

    I'm really not clear what you're asking us for any more. You have now found some patient scenarios and you said you'll deal with the terminology yourself. Now you just need to write your own roleplay scripts.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
