Pre-Intermediate Spanish Practice CourseA video lesson from the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Practice Course which practices the 69 topics of the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Theory Course.

This is the 5th Spanish lesson in the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Practice Course. This is an interactive Spanish video where you have the opportunity to practice Spanish at pre-intermediate level with a native Spanish speaker.

In this Spanish lesson we will practice more about using the Spanish verb Doler to speak Spanish at the doctor’s and describe the various aches and pains you are feeling in Spanish. El verbo Doler, for example, is used to describe a headache (Dolor de cabeza) or a sore throat (Dolor de garganta). It is also used when you want to say that a part of your body “hurts” – for example – “My feet hurt” would be “Me duelen los pies”. This video lesson is part of a series of lessons aimed at preparing you for managing if you need to speak Spanish at the doctor’s. I sincerely hope that you never need to visit a doctor whilst spending time in a Spanish speaking country, but you never know. It is one of the awful times when you can feel very vulnerable and stressed if you are not able to explain the issues bothering you with at least a bit of basic Spanish.

Please try to watch the video first before looking at the lesson notes. Answers to all tasks involved in the lesson will be given at the end of the post. Try not to look at the answers until you have tried a good few times to give your own responses.

This lesson practices the information taught in Pre-Intermediate Spanish Lesson 5: More about using Doler to speak Spanish at the doctor’s from my Pre-Intermediate Spanish Course.
