About Expector

Hi Friends,

Welcome to my page! Do you like the above photos I took when I was travelling in China? And, did you enjoy listening to the music on my wall? I hope so.

I'm not really an English teacher, though I often help learners learn English. I love English, which is a fantastic language and now a global one. I like to write and read blogs. I hope you can check out my blogs below - don't forget to leave your comment there and I'll respond.

I love MyEC. It's a great honour to be a moderator here. I'll do my best to help keep MyEC interesting, friendly and decent. I'd like to thank Josef and Tara for offering me such an opportunity to be a member of the excellent team here.

Enjoy!

Smith, I don't know how to explain correctly, actually here we say scale ( instead of ruler!) so, I used it. I think, I should call it as ruler and sorry for that typo...roller, yes, that has another meaning. Anyway you were not in EC for a couple of days, right? Thanks.

At 4:35 on October 27, 2014, afro said…

Smith....It is scales of fish  and a scale which is used for measurement (kids use scale as a roller) please check and let me know.

Ok Doc. I got it transcribed. You will notice that in America we maximize instead of maximising. That is one of our little spelling quirks. I posted this on the group page, but here it is for you also. Maybe I should have done an elementary level recording but that would be no challenge to the more advanced people.

Does your doctor ever give you medicine? If so, you’re probably also given some information to read. It is important that you read the information and that you follow the instructions.

Most medicines come with a statement similar to this.

Before using this medicine be sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist:

If you have previously experienced any allergic reactions ( itch, rash, etc.) to any medicines.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

If you are taking any other medicinal products.

Some medicines may interact to enhance or diminish medicinal effects. Beware of over-the-counter medicines and dietary supplements, as well as other prescription medicines.

So, if you read this, you should pay attention and be certain to let the doctor know if you’ve had any type of allergic reaction. Some allergic reactions can actually kill you and it is very important not to mix medicines that are not compatible with each other. So, that is a reason for these warnings. So please do pay attention when you get medicines and when you begin taking them.

Medicines have adverse reactions (risks) as well as efficacies (benefits). It is important to minimize adverse reactions and maximize efficacy. To obtain a better therapeutic response, patients should understand their medication and cooperate with the treatment.

Hi Expector Smith,

I just posted a short recording for intermediate and advanced users on the Kill Your Fear of Talking group. It has some medical terminology and I spelled out the words that I thought may confuse them in my written message. I would like your advice regarding anything else I should add or maybe you will choose to mention some other words that may be difficult for our typical audience.

I think it is important for people to read and follow the instructions on their medicines, so I chose that as a very different type of post for people to listen to.
