Lesson Transcript

Hello, my name is Alisa. Welcome to German weekly words and today’s topic is being sick.
The first word is [Allergie] - “allergy”. [Im Frühjahr haben viele Menschen in Deutschland eine Allergie gegen Pollen.] - “In Germany in the spring time, a lot of people have allergies against pollen”.
[Asthma], I guess it’s the same English word “asthma”. Well in Germany, you pronounce everything. So it’s [Asthma] - asthma, it just sounds very soft. [Für die Leute die Asthma haben, ist es sehr schwer lange Joggen zu gehen.] - “So for the people who have asthma, it’s hard to jog for long time”.
[Bauchschmerzen] - “Stomachache”. [Wenn ich Bauchschmerzen habe, bin ich sehr schlecht drauf.] - “So when I have a stomachache, I am in a very bad mood”.
[Fieber] - “fever”. Yeah [Wenn man Fieber hat, sollte man direkt zum Arzt gehen.] - “when you have fever, you should go to the doctor right away”.
[Kopfschmerzen] - “headache”. I don’t know why but when the weather gets crazy and cloudy, I always get headaches [Wenn es regnet oder wenn es wolkig ist, kriege ich schnell Kopfschmerzen. ]. - “When it’s rainy and cloudy, I get headaches easily”. Thank you for watching and I hope you don’t get sick or anything. Be careful and hope you tune in again, bye.

Hi Håkan,

You would say something like

"Ich bin verschnupft." That comes from the word "Schnupfen", meaning

"a cold". You can also say "Ich habe einen Schnupfen" (I have a cold).

Literally, "My nose and ears are congested" means "Meine Nase und meine Ohren sind verstopft", but

in that much detail I would probably only talk to a doctor.

Thank you.

If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Kind regards,
