Challenge 11: How are you feeling?
After catching a cold a couple of weeks ago, I have been left with a nasty persistent cough. But even a negative can be turned to a positive Spanish learning opportunity. Any situation can be looked at as an unexplored source of new vocabulary, so let’s take a look at some examples of asking after someone’s health and replying to these types of questions.
¿Cómo te encuentras? – How are you feeling?
¿Cómo estás? – How are you?
¿Te encuentras bien? – Are you feeling OK?
¿Cómo te sientes? – How are you feeling?
No te ves bien – you don’t look well
Te ves mal – you look unwell
Deberías ir al médico – you should go to see the doctor
Me siento mal – I feel bad
Me encuentro fatal – I feel terrible
Tengo una tos desagradable – I have a nasty cough
Me siento mejor hoy – I feel better today
Me sentí muy mal la semana pasada – I felt terrible last week.
Debo quedarme en la cama – I should stay in bed
I am still feeling weak myself, so I shall leave you for now. My native Spanish checker has a migraine too, so if you see any mistakes they are all mine.
