Flipping cards Medical professions

Here’s another flipping card quiz, but this time with audio files so you can hear how to pronounce each word.

Two things I’d like to mention. One is that there are other ways to pronounce many of these word depending on where the English is spoken, but basically I’m sticking to my mother tongue, which is Brit English. Two, there’s a bit of white noise in some of the audios, but I don’t know how to remove this yet, because I’ve just started using the programme and it looks a bit like an aircraft control panel (all full of knobs and buttons).

Anyway, I’m really pleased about being able to upload audios and listen to them getting over the shame one feels when hearing their own voice.

What Doctors Won’t Do…

Are you one of my type, meaning that you’d ditch the doctor unless you found yourself at death’s door or are you more of the hypochondriac type that literally lives surrounded by huge piles of medical prescriptions? Are you leery of medical treatments or do you leap at the opportunity to have every single organ in your body scrutinized? Whatever position you may side with, you’re bound to find these extracts from The Guardian interesting.  For today, I’ve prepared two, concerned with alternative medical treatments, but I hope to get round to adding a couple more in the near future.

PS. Some years back I treated a cat I had with homeopathy, and guess what? It worked!!!
