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 4th 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 using the Spanish verb Doler to describe aches and pains at the doctor’s. 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 when speaking Spanish at the doctor’s. In the previous lesson we looked at the body parts in Spanish and in the next lesson we will also continue looking at useful verbs and phrases to use if you find yourself having to visit a doctor whilst travelling or living in a Spanish speaking country.

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 4: Using Spanish verb Doler at the doctor’s from my Pre-Intermediate Spanish Course.
